Some of the Essential Reasons Mentoring Students Succeed:
Complete Education: Mentoring encourages students to achieve excellence, including essential academic social and emotional skills which are pivotal not just in high school but throughout life.
Extensive Mentoring: The professional staff constantly engage each student to support their strengths and to improve necessary skills.
Small Classes: (2-5 students), fostering strong, safe connections among classmates and mentors. There are no cracks to fall through. And no loneliness of being without friends.
Inventive Curriculum: Carefully designed experiences engage 21st century students in pursuit of invention, creativity, cultural awareness and academic rigor.
Relationships Flourish: among students and mentors in one-on-one meetings, small class discussions, and shared experiences.
Inter-Cultural Experiences: Students explore museums, Berkeley Rep theater, retreats, and the Extraordinary Program – Mentoring Academy’s all-school, international, in-depth discovery Experience where each student investigates, then Explores: Washington D.C., Poland, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Italy and Historical California.
Mentoring Academy is committed to providing the opportunity for students grade levels 9-12 to learn at their own pace in a community committed to the wellbeing of all its members, while also accommodating and fostering each student’s distinct passions and interests.
Mentoring Academy’s students have demonstrated remarkable success in individual projects, awards, college admissions, national test results, and measures of self-valuation, and perceived happiness.
We’re excited to engage students in that same growth again this coming year, in person, and we have room for a few others to join us for the journey.
