Academics and Work Study
We have been asked how the academic program and the Work Study program interface. The programs go hand in hand. The academic program continues to be college preparatory, with schedules adjusted accordingly to make sure that the curriculum is fully delivered and covered in four days instead of five. The academic program is arranged such that instructional time is maximized during the four school days and the work does not interfere with the academic program. In fact, the work is considered part of the academic program because of the skills students develop. Students receive grades for both academics and work. Below is a pictorial representation of how academics and Work Study work together!
