We can help! Academic Coaching at Cannon (ACC) is officially OPEN for the 2021-22 school in Room 606 or via Zoom.  Our Academic Coaching team is comprised of Mrs. Weakland, Mr. Smith, Mrs. Miller, Ms. Kaye, Mrs. Calles, and Mrs. Holston. ACC is designed to support YOU in the way YOU choose!  YOU control all aspects of your experience: date and time of appointment, frequency of appointments (3x is recommended!), length of appointment, and the content of appointment. Appointment slots are available during Drops or Office Hours.

Click HERE or scan the QR codes posted around the building to sign up for an appointment with our AWESOME Academic Coaches!

Looking for a productive way to use your Tuesday/Thursday Office Hours? We’ve got you covered! ACC – Room 606 – will be OPEN ALL YEAR during Office Hours for academic coaching appointments, as a space for quiet independent work, and/or as an accountability partner for students resolving incompletes. 

Students only need to make a formal appointment for coaching sessions; otherwise, they are free to “drop in” anytime during Office Hours.
