As we near the end of spring semester, one strategy the counseling department implements in collaboration with the faculty to prepare students for finals is Study Jam. Study Jam happens two time a year, once in the fall and once in the spring during finals review week. Students 9th-12th grade are invited to join their peers and teachers in a “college like” setting where they can work in study groups. We create a schedule by grade level and break down the subjects by days. Students and teachers meet in the Student Success Center for about an hour after school and they go over questions on their study guides. Study Jam not only provides a study time for students but also a feeling of community and brotherhood – students learn from both their teachers and their peers. As counselors one of our main focuses is to support our students and to create programs to cultivate lifelong learners – we look forward to continuing to implement existing and new strategies.
