Academic Support Hours

CultureWorks students have Academic Support built into their schedule. At the start of each term, students are assigned an academic advisor. During their weekly Academic Support hour, students will engage in a variety of activities, including small-group and partnered academic skill building activities. They will also have the opportunity to work with their academic advisor one-on-one to help them achieve academic success.
