At De La Salle North Catholic, we want all students to get the support they need to navigate a challenging college prep curriculum. In the Academic Resource Center, dedicated tutors help students strengthen their math and literacy skills while they complete classwork for their core subjects.
The ARC team communicates with teachers, counselors, and families to determine how best to work with individual students. Some may need support in a variety of subject areas and will have an ARC class as part of their schedule. These students receive daily academic tutoring and learn strategies for organization and time-management. Other students may only need to meet with a tutor once a week. Our goal for all students in ARC is that they will confidently and successfully meet the challenges on their path to graduation.
The ARC staff is made up of both paid tutors and volunteers. About 15% of DLSNC students receive daily support in ARC, and over half of the student population access some level of support over the course of a year. Since its opening in 2015, the ARC has contributed to a significantly improved rate of academic retention.
