Academic Coordinator: Ms. Melissa Beckmann
The academic program offers a broadly based comprehensive education through a highly structured core curriculum. The emphasis of this component is on applications involving communication, mathematics, science, and social studies. Advanced Placement and College Preparatory instruction is included for those students who plan to further their education. Through a combination of ability and heterogeneous grouping, students are prepared to enter today’s job market and learn that education is a lifelong process, which is so important in today’s changing workplace.
The academic programs at Tri-County are aligned to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks in all core subject areas: English Language Arts (ELA), math science, and social studies. Course are available at the Advanced Placement, Honors, and College Preparatory levels and meet the individual needs of students who are considering attending a four or two-year institution of higher education. Tri-County also meets the needs of students who are on an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
Tri-County is excited to announce the reopening of the Tri-County Remote Homework Center (RHC). The in-person Homework Center is also an option for students Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 2:15 – 4:15. The in-person HW Center takes place in the Library and has been running all year. Unfortunately, because of the transportation issue, we have not been able to offer bussing home from the HW Center and know that this has caused many students to not be able to stay. It is hoped that having both an in-person and remote option will help all students get the help they need, from qualified staff, to succeed in their academic classes.
The official start date for the Remote Homework Center is Monday, January 3. This is an opportunity for students to work with teachers in core subject areas Monday through Thursday and receive one-on-one help. The RHC is open from 4:00pm to 6:00pm each day. Students can go to one, two, or all four days for targeted instruction or just to get their homework done.
