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.
Free Test Prep Information Session
October 30th, 6:00 pm, Rm 6246
Sign up your student for this seminar and receive a free diagnostic exam for the test of their choice. They can use this exam as practice or to see where they are at. The seminar is broken down into 3 sections. First, I will offer background information on the two different exams and the differences between them. I will also touch on strengths and weaknesses of each exam. Second, there will be time for Q&A where parents and students will have the opportunity to ask either general questions about the exams. Finally, there will be time for students and parents to come up individually to get feedback on either past test results or results from the diagnostic we offer.  We offer two different test prep packages, but both include both one-on-one tutoring sessions to customize the content to the student's needs, and at least one diagnostic exam that serves as valuable practice and an indicator of where students stand with timing and accuracy.
