Academic Support

The counseling program at TGA includes a weekly classroom seminar (approximately 1 hour) with the junior and senior classes.  The juniors receive collaborative instruction on both life and study skills with such topics as:  time management, study skills, test anxiety/preparation, interest surveys, college searches, and stress management.  The focus of the senior class seminars includes: college/scholarship application preparation, resume writing, self assessment, and career exploration.  Guest speakers are invited to speak on occasion to expose the students to different points of view on a topic’s presentation.

Additional academic support at TGA includes tutoring (peer and faculty based) by student request, as well as parental access to the students’ online grades throughout the semester.
