Elementary Academic Support

In our schools, we support and encourage all students to take responsibility for their learning as a very important life skill. Students are expected to be punctual for class, be prepared with the appropriate materials and supplies, participate fully and complete assignments and homework. Students and their parents should seek help from teachers and staff if they are experiencing difficulties. We are here to help. Teachers are dedicated to improving student success and we provide student support services to help them reach their educational goals. 

The Student Success Centre

Bishop Alexander Carter’s Student Success Centre offers students a variety of academic supports to help students meet the curriculum expectations throughout the year. Some of the supports include:

  • One to one support with a Resource Teacher. 
  • Extra resources/supplies as required by students. 
  • Pre-arranged homework help at lunch upon request. 
  • An alternative setting to write tests, work on classroom assignments, and complete incomplete work due to absences.
