What makes the club unique is the academic and social support it provides. The club provides free tutoring to the high school students with our diverse groups of University at Albany tutors. The tutors are able to help in any subject that students need assistance in, whether it's math, science, english, history or even a foreign language!
The club also provides junior and seniors college readiness by providing free SAT Prep sessions during the fall and spring. The SAT prep sessions readies you for the real test and provides tips and methods on how to score well on the SATs.
The tutors provide social support, by just simply lending an ear. They are always available during programming hours to listen and talk to you about whatever you may need, whether it is about the college experience, SAT's, music, movies, or just comforting words about your day. The tutors are always there to help!
"The icing on the cake", are the enriching trips that the club provides. Last year students that attended the program went on recreational and educational trips. Some of the most notable trips last year were: the Bodies Exhibit, Niagara Falls, University of Buffalo, UAlbany Shadow Day and the STEP Conference.
If you want to join or learn more about our amazing program from our tutors or other students, please stop by Mrs. Mall-John's class, which is room 325. The club operates at Albany High School from Monday thru Thursday from 3pm to 5pm.
Hope to see all of you wonderful students there, and good luck on the school year! -- A.A.G.
