Cristo Rey Philadelphia's Academic Support programs focus on helping students develop habits for success, such as managing their time, staying organized, and using effective study strategies. We offer a variety of services to students, from traditional tutoring, where students work individually or in small groups with a tutor to review content-specific skills, to academic coaching, where students brainstorm and collaborate with academic mentors who help them problem-solve and develop specific goals to work on.
We use data to help us identify which students could benefit from additional support and what those supports should look like. We know that each of our students have a unique set of strengths and needs, and tailor our approach to each student.
