Advisement and Supports

ADVISEMENT

All students receive support through our advisement model. At Energy Tech, we have 3 full-time social workers and 2 counselors, and we are additionally supported through an on-site mental health clinic, Western Queens Consultation. Designated teachers and staff also support with advisement - particularly related to college and career programs and application processes. For more information, please contact your child's counselor or Assistant Principal Beth Antonelli - bantonelli@energytechhs.org.

TUTORING

Tutoring is available after-school for students who may want extra help in achieving their academic goals. In addition to after-school support, students have the opportunity to attend Saturday Academy to prepare for the Regents exams. We also are able to provide more support in class with student teachers and CUNY Tutor Corps members in mathematics and computer science classes. There are extensive opportunities for students to get the help they need, and parents and students should reach out to Grade Team Leaders if they feel that they need more academic support. We offer after-school and before-school intervention groups and even lunchtime tutoring for students who are struggling with the demands of our challenging academic program.

MENTORING

Finally, we offer a range of college- and career-readiness support through small group mentoring, guest speakers, and College and Career Foundations classes. Our partners at LaGuardia Community College, Con Edison, and National Grid give their time to provide feedback to teachers and mentor small groups of students on a monthly basis about the expectations of life after high school. We feel confident that students who leave our program will be well positioned to secure a range of careers or admissions in competitive four-year colleges.
