At Albany Leadership, our mission is to ensure that young women of the capital region receive the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in college and ultimately the careers of their choosing. We work on the frontlines to accomplish this goal in a myriad of ways for the sole purpose of witnessing our students’ academic and professional success.
As the first semester comes to a close, we wanted to take this opportunity to expand on how our students and their families can partner with ALH teachers and educators for the academic and professional success of our students. At ALH, there are three main ways in which students can take the steps needed to improve and maintain academic success. They are (1) Academic Support, (2) FLEX time, and (3) Study Hall for Seniors.
In academic support, students have the opportunity to utilize a portion of their school day to ask questions and work on assignments alongside a teacher. During the pandemic, students have the opportunity to log into a google meet or a conference class through the Schoology platform to speak directly or in a small group with their teacher about the content and assignments. Academic support times are typically scheduled by the school counselors for students who struggle with math, science, or regents focused subject. In FLEX time, all students have the opportunity to meet with their teachers to ask questions and receive extra support on a particular subject, or assignment. FLEX time occurs at the end of each school day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays when school is in session. New to ALH and as a result of the pandemic, we have incorporated a virtual Senior Study Hour dedicated to our grade 12 students to ensure that they maintain the momentum to graduate and transition into college. Study hour allows our seniors to ask questions, work on assignments, or finalize college applications. Study Hour occurs on asynchronous Wednesdays between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
To learn more about how students can improve their grades for the second semester, please contact teachers, school counselors, or the main office.
