Want some help in your classes? Check out our resources!

YOU can learn ANYTHING, but that doesn’t mean you won’t hit some roadblocks along the way. We all start from the beginning in all subjects, and we all have to make mistakes in order to learn. The key to successful learning is getting back up after you’ve fallen, continuing to try, and getting support when you need it. This video says it all!

There are MANY resources and supports out there to help students learn. We’ve compiled a list of helpful resources for students that would like some extra support in their classes. These resources (also listed below) are listed on our Academic Support page. Remember to talk to your counselor if you feel overwhelmed in a class- we will always do our best to help!
