Guidance

The Guidance Department’s Peer Tutoring program is a useful way to help improve student grades and encourage students to keep working hard.  It assists students who are experiencing difficulties in a certain subject area or who have a language barrier by pairing them up with senior high school students who have had proven success in that subject area.

Students are reminded that application deadlines can approach quickly depending on the school or country of study chosen. Students and parents are encouraged to contact Mr. Link via email or telephone to set an appointment to meet, to ask questions regarding the application process, and/or to request transcripts. You do not want to miss any deadlines. Mr. Link can be reached at glink@ciaschool.com or via the school’s telephone number 545-3871 extension 40, during regular school hours.
