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.
