Academic Support for Student Athletes
Before/After School or Lunch - FREE!
Arcadia is proud to announce the expansion of the Arcadia GOAL Peer Tutoring to all student athletes. GOAL, which is short for Growing Our Academic Learning, is a student run tutoring program that is now available to all team sports. Each team selects delegates to help facilitate the students in need of support and matches them with fellow students on the team that can tutor in various subjects.

GOAL began two years ago within the Arcadia Soccer Club as a way to help with eligibility within the boys soccer team which had been plagued with grade issues. Since GOAL was started, every member of the soccer team has been eligible. Arcadia decided to implement this program school wide this fall and is pioneering this concept within the district. In addition, GOAL has advanced its technology by implementing Google Classroom, Google Slides, and Google Forms to make GOAL more accessible for student athletes needing help from the delegates/tutors.  Any student athlete needing any type of academic intervention should talk to their coach and/or GOAL delegate. Tutoring sessions can take place before school, at lunch, or after school at no cost to the student.
