Academic Strategies Program Information
Oldfields is recognized for its exceptional ability to offer a challenging and diverse curriculum to each student while providing them with the tools and support they need to be successful. Supporting our students is a critical component of our academic program as demonstrated by a unique academic schedule, extra help periods, proctored study halls, peer tutors, and a dedicated academic support team. Even though Oldfields has an impressive integrated academic support team that is available to every student, some students require more focus on their unique learning style and would benefit from additional individualized attention.
The Academic Strategies Program (ASP) was designed to enhance your student's educational experience in the areas in which they need it most. ASP sessions can be scheduled during the academic day or evening study hall, depending on availability and the discretion of the academic coaches. Sessions are individualized and can include - but are not limited to - additional support for upcoming tests and projects, critical reading strategies, exploring new study methods, and development of organizational and time management skills. As the year progresses and assignments evolve, so do the scope and focus of each session. Our academic coaches bring years of experience and teach skills not only useful at Oldfields, but ones that will also be valuable in college and beyond.
All students are eligible to participate. A student’s academic schedule may limit the ASP options available to them. If you are interested in receiving more information, contact Kerri Husband-McGregor, Director of Academic Strategies Program, at Husbandmck@OldfieldsSchool.org.
