Academic Assistance

Carrabassett Valley Academy values the student-teacher relationship as it develops within the classroom. In most cases, the academic support a student-athlete requires in the course of his or her scholastic career at CVA will take place in this setting. Circumstances arise, nonetheless, in which students require assistance in addition to the support that a teacher, in a given course, can routinely provide. The Academic Assistance Program occurs during Learning Center hours, typically during the student's study period during the academic day.  There may an additional fee for this program depending on the level of academic assistance needed. The number of meeting hours a week may be reviewed or changed throughout the year. 

Student meetings with academic assistants may cover:
  • A check-in on the student's current assignments.
  • Help with current academic concepts.
  • Assistance in ‘active’ studying techniques for assessments.
  • Tips for staying organized both at CVA and while traveling.
Academic assistants are kept informed of any news regarding their student from weekly teachers’ meetings and in turn, keep lines of communication going between the student, teachers, parents, coaches, and advisor. 

While one of the goals of the CVA education is for students to gain autonomy and independent thinking through learning while traveling and competing, the academic assistance program is in place to help students move in that direction.
