  • The advisor is available daily by cell phone, text and email, and meets with the student (and usually parent) in the home a minimum of twice per month.
  • Highly qualified teachers grade work, tutor and conduct enrichment classes in their subject areas.
  • Each student belongs to a team that include teachers certified in all core areas, a counselor and a senior internship coordinator.
