The Collegiate Academy groups students with one of their ninth grade teachers, their mentors, during their freshmen year. These students and mentors work together on a bi-weekly basis to assist in acclimating to the high school experience as well as create strong bonds and a safe space where students feel comfortable voicing their struggles and successes.
The Collegiate Academy requires that students do thorough research into careers and colleges they are interested in. They work to create a plan of action that will provide them the proper steps needed to take from ninth grade to achieve their goal. If students are not sure of a career path or have multiple ideas, their mentor will work with the student to create multiple pathways they could take.
Students are encouraged to continue to come to their mentor for support throughout their time at LIFE.
