Students meet in the Kent County Middle School media center Thursday, Nov. 30 for the inaugural session of the After-School Tutoring Academy, a new educational enrichment and intervention program.
CHESTERTOWN — Kent County Middle School has launched a new tutoring program to help students get ahead in core content classes.
The free After-School Tutoring Academy launched last month for middle school students, providing tutoring and extra skill-building time in English language arts, math, science and social studies.
The academy is offered from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. every Thursday at the school.
The first tutoring session was held Nov. 30, with students helping one another in the media center.
Tyray Johnson, the Title I family liaison at Kent County Middle School, called the kickoff academy session a big win.
"It was a very exciting time to see our National Junior Honor Society students working together and helping their fellow classmates achieve success along with support from our certified after-school teaching staff members," Johnson said. "This is what makes all the difference in achieving academic excellence for all students."
