Serving Children from Norwalk and Stamford

High School

The Horizons at NCCS High School Program provides a range of services and support including one-on-one academic coaching for all grades, needs-based tutoring, peer and group learning and social opportunities, college tours, SAT Prep (11th  & 12th grade), and college readiness workshops.

 

New Team Model for Academic Coaching

To continue to strengthen our academic coaching, we are implemented a new Team model approach this fall. Teams of three to four coaches (depending on the size of the grade) will support a grade of high school students, working with them to build the skills and complete the tasks that are specific to the grade they are in. The Team will intentionally include a staff member with an academic focus, one with a social-emotional focus, and one with a skill-building focus.  The grade-level teams will provide students in that grade with 4 hours of small group and 1:1 instruction and support. Staff time will be built in to allow for regular professional development and team planning time.
