Cougar XL is a collaborative and supportive environment for students transitioning from middle school to SCHS and beyond. This term course is for all 9th graders, except those in year-long fine arts. Students will work in a blended learning environment with college tutors who will provide academic support utilizing Achieve 3000, ALEKS, small group instruction and allowing for independent work time throughout the week.


Students in grades 10-12 are supported and work in a quiet space in the library where they receive help on upper division Math, Science, Humanities, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Students work in collaborative groups in which college tutors monitor progress and promote a positive and productive learning environment. They are provided resources to better reinforce key concepts learned in class to complete necessary assignments.


Achieve 3000 is an online literacy program that helps students prepare for college and career using non-fictional text at their reading level and challenges them to increase their reading comprehension (Lexile-level). ALEKS is an online math program that provides individualized instruction and practice for students to master foundational math skills they are missing based on initial and ongoing assessments. Small group instruction is facilitated by college tutors under the guidance of certificated teaching staff. Each tutor is trained in AVID tutorial methodologies. Independent work is completed in a quiet library environment structured to allow students time and space to complete assignments and projects with support from College Tutors and Peer Tutors.
