The peer-tutoring program offers students the opportunity to buddy up with someone from the same class or someone who has excelled in the subject area to assist the student as they master subject content.
A full-time reading specialist is available to all students in the Lower School. A 2014 study by the American Academy of Pediatrics revealed that reading daily to young people can help with language acquisition and literacy skills. The study also discovered that more than one in three American children start kindergarten without the skills they need to learn to read. Therefore, Farragut strives to be proactive by incorporating programs through the Center for Academic Success to bring all of its students up to a level that instills confidence.
Weekly Project Planning
Upper School students may receive (no-charge) guidance once a week for planning the upcoming week’s study time to maximize results and ensure projects and assignments are completed accurately and on time.
