As a new school year begins, there is often both excitement and anxiety in the air. A new school year means plenty of unknowns. And as a student progresses through middle and high school, the pressures can mount as the stakes grow higher. It can be overwhelming. But we want you to know that you are not alone. We have been hard at work determining how we might best support the students of AP Ranch during these strange days. And so we’d like to present to you a new program: Collaborate.
The definition of “collaborate” is literally “to labor with.” We want to come beside you (whether virtually or in person) and labor with you as you tackle the hurdles of this school year. We are busy preparing a system of accountability, support, and practical training sessions that we believe will be invaluable to you.
Who is it for?
Any student entering fifth through twelfth grade is welcome to apply. We are looking for students who demonstrate a strong commitment to academic excellence.
What does it look like?
Students who are accepted to AP Ranch Collaborate will be assigned a partner for the duration of the school year. This fellow student will be a teammate, ally, and accountability partner. Both students will navigate this journey together along with the help and coaching of the Academic Coordinator.
