Just three weeks into the school year, Evanston Township High School (ETHS) is offering its Wildkit Academy programs for the 2013-14 academic year. The first of these programs, designed to help students maintain their academic momentum, is scheduled for Sept. 14.  These academic support sessions are offered on select Saturdays and are open to all current ETHS students with a student ID.

During Wildkit Academy, students are able to ask questions and share problems with ETHS teachers and staff, collaborate with classmates on group projects, hold informal study groups or work on class assignments in a flexible environment. Wildkit Academy is free and is scheduled for 17 Saturdays during the 2013-14 school year, each with two morning sessions, one at 9 a.m. and one at 10:35 a.m. Students may attend one or both of the sessions, depending on their need and availability.

Wildkit Academy has been operating for the past three school years, with some sessions drawing hundreds of students to receive support in specific content areas. Student athletes often attend sessions to help fulfill academic requirements. Special programs are included in the schedule at targeted times of the year to help students in areas such as ACT test preparation, Advanced Placement (AP) coursework and earned honors assessments.
