SJHS Evening Academy

Open and Ready to help!

What is Evening Academy?

Evening Academy is an after school program that helps students be successful in high school.

What can Evening Academy be used for?

1. Credit Recovery

2. Attendance Make-Up

3. Tutoring, Junior paper and Senior project assistance 

What are the Evening Academy Hours?

Every Monday through Thursday from 2:30 to 4:30 in room 4216.

Tutoring is offered everyday for every class, but Mondays and Wednesdays are better for Math/Science and Tuesdays and Thursdays are better for English/History. 

What is credit recovery?

If a student fails a course, they do not get credit for that course.  Credit Recovery is a way that students can recover the credit without retaking the class during the school day.  They are assigned the course in e2020 and work on the computer at their own pace.  Credit Recovery is a pass/fail system adn therefore can not be used to make a studnts GPA go up, only give them credit for the course they failed.

What are the benefits of Evening Academy?

Evening academy is offered afterschool and is completely FREE.  Recovering credit during Evening Academy could be faster than retaking the entire course during the school day.  It is based on work completion rather than seat time.  So a hard working student can finish a course faster online, than takign the course face-to-face with a teacher. 

Is transportation provided?

Unfortunately, transportation is not provided and parents/guardians need to arrange for their child to be picked up from the front of the school at 4:30.
