The mission of the Academic Resource Center is to challenge students and to support them as they attempt to maximize their individual potential. The goals of ARC are to provide support to all levels of students, to strengthen students through organization, time management development and personal responsibility. There is also an emphasis to create a tight network between parents, students, and teachers to ensure that the student is working and achieving to the best of his/her ability. Additionally, the ARC reinforces critical thinking, positive choice-making and the use of coping skills when there is a serious illness and/or death of a family member. They also help to tweak college essays, create flashcards, look at each day as fresh with no mistakes, feeling warmth and secure and finally applying their education material to life outside of school. Lastly, National Honor Students serve as tutors to help in the ARC, so that there is always someone to help any student at any time during the school day.
