  • AGC Program Mission

    The mission of the Hebron Academy Academic Guidance Center is to empower students of all abilities to become academically independent and accountable. The Academic Guidance Center is principled on developing academic strategies, greater academic confidence and self-awareness.
  • Program Outcome

    The intent of the Academic Guidance Center is to build a stronger more independent student who is aware of their strengths and weaknesses.  Students learn in AGC to manage their academic work, advocate for themselves, and use academic tools and strategies to succeed.
  • Type of Student

    Any student may enroll in the Academic Guidance Center for 2-4 days a week. Each student is encouraged to have cognitive testing that is up to date or in the process of being updated.  These results show the student's cognitive and analytical strengths and weaknesses and learning patterns. It will help teachers be better prepared to work with the student.
  • Methods/Evaluation

    Students enrolled in the Academic Guidance Center are assigned a class period to work directly with the staff in AGC on improving executive function skills. The AGC staff use physical and online teaching tools, and collaborate with teachers, students and parents to develop an individual student's curriculum.  The AGC staff oversees and reports progress through recorded notes, communication with teachers, and term and midterm evaluations.  The student curriculum changes based on feedback from the student, teachers, or their term/midterm grades.  The staff in AGC use department developmental meetings, online resources and visit conferences in order to ensure that students are receiving up to date instruction while enrolled in the AGC.
  • AGC Team Structure

    Students, parents, teachers, advisors, and the AGC staff all work together to help the student achieve academic success.  Each student is assigned a team leader that coordinates communication, develops the learning plan, and ensures that the student’s learning profile is updated and used by teachers.
  • Skills Courses/Structured Study Hall

    The AGC staff oversee two skill based courses populated by new freshman and sophomores during the fall term.  Each course surveys executive function, research and analytical skills using content developed specifically for these courses. The goal is to provide each student with a learning foundation that they can use to begin a successful academic career at Hebron Academy.

    The Structured Study Hall program provides a more structured environment during the night time study period.  Students are assigned to the library or they can request to attend.  The program provides a better teacher to student ratio and a more conducive learning area than the dormitory. The structured study hall faculty work hard to create a quiet and productive atmosphere in our school’s Hupper Library for students to focus on their school work
