The teachers in the Learning Workshop really help me by reviewing and reinforcing what I learn in class. They guide me through any struggles I have, and that helps me to concentrate and do well. The Learning Workshop teachers accept everyone with open arms!

Academic Support Services

Our Academic Resources department is available to all Holy Names students. It is staffed by teachers who have one goal - to help you become an active learner who can achieve success at Holy Names and beyond. 

When you come to the Math Lab, Writing Center or Learning Workshop, we listen to your individual needs and treat you with respect. Whether you are looking for assistance in math, writing, research, test taking or tutoring in a specific subject, our resource teachers are ready to assist you. Students from all grade levels take advantage of our services, and we committed to making sure that all Holy Names students have the resources and support that they need to succeed.

Math Lab

We have a math teacher available to assist students with homework and math problems, as well as test reviews and preparation.

Help with SAT preparation is also offered.

The Writing Center

Completing high school writing assignments can often be difficult. That’s why we have a special Writing Center with peer tutors who have advanced training as writing teachers.

Students are encouraged to sign up for individual appointments, but walk-ins are also welcome.

For students who need further assistance in English courses, we have a Writing Workshop that meets for regularly-scheduled sessions.

The Learning Workshop

Some students look for help in reaching their academic potential. Our Learning Workshop staff provides individual instruction in study skills and time management, as well as assistance with homework, and, when required, testing modifications.

Students may use these services by either meeting for regularly-scheduled sessions or on an as-needed basis.
