Student Support Services
In partnership with students, parents and teachers, Carondelet’s student support services creates an educational environment committed to the intellectual, personal and social development of each student. We seek to guide and empower students by connecting them with a broad network of support services provided by academic advisors, college counselors, personal counselors, and learning specialists.
Academic support services at Carondelet center upon helping all students succeed with the following strategies in place: Study skills, tutoring via teacher office hours, and via National Honor Society (email NHS here), time management, academic coaching, summer learning experiences, and student success intervention.
Carondelet's Student Success Team (SST) is a problem solving and coordinating model that assists students, families, faculty, and staff in seeking solutions toward maximizing student potential with positive learning outcomes as an ideal. The SST model focuses in-depth on one student at a time, and invites the parent guardian and student to participate in this helpful and transformative process. Team members may also include: SST facilitator, secretary/recorder of SST information, administrators, school counselors, teachers, learning specialists, and educational support specialists. Additionally, the SST provides a structure to review the academic, behavioral, attendance, and health/well-being status of each student. Further, this process invites a group of individuals with a common goal to achieve success through supportive measures and multiple strategies.
