Academic Support

OFFICE HOURS
Teachers are present on campus from 7:15am - 3:30pm, Monday through Friday and are available to meet with students both before and after school. Students are highly encouraged to consult with their teachers during official office hours and to meet with them regularly for additional assistance. Parent/Teacher meetings can be scheduled for this time as well.

TUTORING
Tutoring is also provided by National Honor Society students on campus after school. NHS is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. Here at NDP we create an enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate a desire to render service, promote worthy leadership and encourage the development of character in students.

ACADEMIC CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE (ACE)
The Academic Center for Excellence is a unique pathway extending the supports provided through the St. Aloysius Gonzaga program. Students who demonstrate a need for accommodations to support learning differences are afforded the opportunity to have a study hall where tutoring with teachers is available. Our new testing center, where students go to make up tests, is located in the ACE. For testing center information, click here

TESTING CENTER
The Testing Center is a quiet stress-free environment where students may go to take classroom exams and standardized tests. This space is for students who need to make-up quizzes or exams that they missed while they were absent. The testing center is also a place where students who require extended time for testing can go and complete their exams without distraction or interruption.  

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES
We hold one parent-teacher conference night on campus each year in the fall. Students are encouraged to accompany their parents to the conferences. Teachers are always available to talk to parents by phone or appointment.
