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 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. All students receive instruction on time management and organizational skills through the use of the ASP Planner. (see link below) 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.

Program Units:

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. Honors Scottie Connect is available most terms (dependent on staffing) to selected students who already show Independence in their learning.

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.
