The role of the academic coach is to provide assistance and support for high school students identified and qualified for the Academic Coaching program. The student and the coach will determine the consistency and specific meeting details. The meetings will allow time for the coach to provide individualized attention to the student’s needs and work on various strategies, such as goal setting, time management, organization, planner usage and/or Edline checks, review of accommodations, and encouragement to meet with appropriate teachers for additional support.
The coach will initially serve as an advocate for the student, gradually teaching the student to become a self-advocate. The goal at Eastside Catholic is for students to become strong self-advocates and empowered to be in control of their own academic journey. The academic coach and student will work together toward reaching this goal.
