Academic Support

At St. Mark’s, we work to demystify the learning experience and provide resources to help students achieve their personal academic best.

We encourage students to reflect on their own learning process and to consider the ‘how’ of learning, not just the ‘what.’

Extra Help

Faculty members are readily available to provide extra help. Students often connect with teachers outside the classroom to ask questions, and dig deeper into material, both during the academic day and in evening hours.

Peer Tutors assist students in the Library.

Peer Tutoring

Students from every grade level are Mentors, and are excited to share their academic superpowers with their peers as well as to bring out the superpowers of others. Mentors are available during the academic day, in residential houses, and during evening hours in the library to provide this support.
