Academic Coaches 2016-17
Helix’s Academic Support program is an integral part of a Pyramid of Interventions providing Helix students academic support, successful role models and opportunities to build connections on campus with caring adults. The Academic Coaches while working in units must also work together with teachers, grade level teams, the Wellness Center and parents to provide the essential skills that will keep students on track for graduation. We know that all students learn differently and at different rates, it is up to us to find the key to helping each individual student achieve the goal of graduating from Helix Charter High School. The goal of all programs is to help students become self-directed learners.
Grades 10 -12
Scottie Connect - a place for independent students to complete school work and learn about opportunities to connect to school and the community. College,career, health and wellness presentations occur throughout the school year. All students receive an effort and conduct grade. Students may earn 2.5 elective credits if they meet the requirement.
Upper Grade Support Labs - Science, English/Social Science and Math labs provided targeted tutorial support, study and test prep skills. Students work individually and in groups to improve homework submission rates and test results. All students receive an effort and conduct grade. Students may earn 2.5 elective credits if they meet the requirement.
Study Skills - Run by a Study Skills teacher with the support of Academic Coaches, class work review, accountability for completing work, test preparation, time management and study skills are the emphasis within this unit. Academic Coaches also observe students in their regular education classes to better support the students learning outside the classroom. Students earn an academic grade and elective credit from their Study Skills teacher.
Extended Learning (EXL) - A welcoming environment for our newest Scotties; EXL students work in pods. Academic Coaches provide academic support and one on one mentoring to help students transition from middle school to the "Helix Way." Students participate daily in the ACHIEVE 3000 online literacy program as part of their Helix First grade. For EXL, students receive conduct and effort grades.

HCHS believes that all students can learn. Our rigorous college preparatory curriculum challenges and prepares all students to be successful in college or in whatever field students choose to pursue. We are a wonderfully diverse campus with a high percentage of families that qualify for free and reduced lunch. Tell us how you think an academic support/tutorial program might serve this student population and why you believe that you would be an asset to the program as an academic coach.
