This three-semester course for freshmen begins in the summer
before freshman year and helps students overcome academic
challenges and maximize their personal strength. With a
focus on English and Math, students gain study skills and
academic content knowledge to support their progress all for
years at St. Francis.
This semester class is designed to support students in all of
their coursework. Troubies learn effective study and test-taking
skills and hone their organizational and time management
techniques to ensure success across all subject areas.
California Scholarship Federation (CSF) tutors offer peer
tutoring throughout the school day and after school in all
subject areas. Students can be matched with a peer who has
successfully completed coursework in the subject area and
received one-on-one assistance and support.
Formal Education Program
St. Francis affirms that students with learning differences are
given the opportunity to receive a quality Catholic education in
a caring environment. For students with documented learning
differences, we offer a Formal Education Plan (FEP) which
provides appropriate in-class interventions based on the unique
learning styles of each student.
