Academic Affairs

The Academic Affairs program is the backbone at College Track, supplying students with the support, encouragement and resources necessary to become academically competitive in college. 

Academic Affairs is a comprehensive program that supports and encourages students to succeed in high school while preparing them for the rigors of college. Each student is expected to reach a target GPA in A-G classes for each grade level. In order for students to reach this target, College Track Academic Affairs Directors work collaboratively to provide a selection of services and activities that develop academic skills and effective study habits. Specifically, the activities and services of the Academic Affairs program consist of:

" REAL EDUCATION SHOULD CONSIST OF drawing the goodness and the best out of our students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity."
