Academic Support and Advising

Students at Cristo Rey Jesuit have the opportunity to receive academic support with an academic advisor throughout the academic school year. Some students will be required to meet with an academic advisor based on their academic status and performance in classes. Academic advising is a supportive environment to build on strengths and work through challenges and barriers to be academically successful. 

Academic Advising sessions strive to: 

  • Provide individualized support to struggling students,
  • Discuss grades and plans for academic success,
  • Assist students in setting goals and reflecting on those goals regularly, and
  • Assist students with academic skills (time management, prioritization, study skills).

Virtual Academic Advising

Students can request to meet with an academic advisor if they are struggling with academic demands. Students on academic probation will be required to meet with an academic advisor. Academic advisor’s will be meeting with students and conducting virtual video academic sessions with students for academic support. Each student will be provided a day for office hours to meet with their teachers and/or academic advisor for academic support. Students are encouraged to use this time to prioritize completing academic assignments and obtaining support. 

If a student would like to meet with an academic advisor, please contact Dr. LaTrice Loche (lloche@cristoreyjesuit.org), Dean of Counseling.

College Readiness

This year will be different, but we are working hard to ensure your students have quality college-readiness opportunities. Here are a few updates from the College Readiness Department:

  • We will continue to offer virtual college visits for students.

  • As of right now, we are planning to hold the SAT on campus on Wednesday, October 14th for seniors. They will prepare for the exam leading up to that date. We also encourage our seniors to register for the Saturday SAT exam on either August 29th, September 26th, or October 3rd.

  • If seniors are unable to take the SAT, they will still apply to college; many colleges are now “test optional.” The college counselors have already started working with our seniors to guide them on their path to college. We will meet with them as a whole group during their synchronous Senior College Readiness class and we will also schedule meetings with them individually on asynchronous days. Parents are invited to participate in the individual meetings.

Please feel free to contact Mrs. Loya (bloya@cristoreyjesuit.org), Dean of College Readiness, with questions.
