The Providence Catholic High School Tutoring Center, located in the Bishop Blanchette Learning Commons, provides academic support and tutorial services to all students in all subject areas, while equipping them with the skills needed to be successful, independent, life-long learners.
The Tutoring Center is staffed with both certified teachers and peer tutors, and is open during the following times:
- Periods 1-7 (Study Hall or TDT): Monday – Friday, 7:55 a.m. – 2:35 p.m.
- After School: Monday – Thursday, 2:45 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Types of Services
Drop-Ins: The Tutoring Center is available for students to drop in with questions in any subject area at any level. This includes writing revisions, test preparation and concept review. We ask that students who drop in be prepared with a specific question/topic to discuss. No appointment needed.
Athletes: The grades of all student-athletes, as well as the grades of other students participating in certain additional extracurricular activities, are routinely monitored through weekly academic eligibility reports. Students receiving one or more failing grades on a weekly report are declared ineligible to compete in games/contests for one week.
These student-athletes are required to attend the Tutoring Center at least four days during the week of ineligibility. This requirement can be satisfied by the student reporting to the Tutoring Center either before school, after school, or a combination of the two during the week of ineligibility. Attending the Tutoring Center during Study Hall or TDT does not satisfy this requirement. Students who fulfill this requirement in zero hour may report directly to their team/club practices immediately after school. Students fulfilling this requirement after school will report to practice after 3:30 p.m.
