May students drop in or do they have to make an appointment?
Students may drop in to the Marist Academic Center at any time during the day or during after-school hours. If students have a specific concern or would like to see a certain teacher, they may make an appointment to ensure availability.
When can students visit the Marist Academic Center?
Students are welcome to visit the MAC at any time during the school day or during after-school hours. Students should come to the MAC when they have free time in their schedules. Students should not miss any academic classes when they visit the MAC.
Can the Marist Academic Center help with executive functioning skills?
The Learning Specialists who staff the MAC are well-versed in helping students develop executive function skills. At the MAC, students can expect to learn strategies that will help them with time management, note-taking, organization, and test-taking skills.
Does the Marist Academic Center provide tutoring?
The MAC does not provide individual tutoring for content. We can work with your child's academic counselor to provide contact information for outside tutoring if that is a service you wish to provide for your child outside of the school day.
Does the Marist Academic Center have remedial services for re-teaching of material?
The MAC provides strategy development for learning and studying to help students hone their skills to become more successful in each of their classes. The MAC is not designed or staffed to provide remedial instruction to students who are struggling with content-specific information. We are happy to provide tutoring information if you should need more intensive support for your child.
Can students meet with outside tutors at the Marist Academic Center?
We ask that students schedule tutoring sessions at a location outside of the MAC. The MAC is meant to serve a large number of students; as such, we need to keep the MAC spaces open to as many students as possible.
