Huntington Learning Center Launches New Program To Support Families With Virtual Schooling
The upcoming academic year looks very different for students and families from previous years, and Huntington Learning Center has developed additional resources to support families as they navigate the uncertain start to school this fall. Regardless of the environment and learning track parents choose for their children, Huntington is proud to offer a variety of programs and resources that will set students up for success, including its newly launched Huntington Study Hall program.
“At Huntington, we are working hard in real-time to evolve and elevate our programs to support students who have experienced a disruption in learning due to the pandemic,” said Anne Huntington, President of Huntington Learning Center. “As we have done for over 40 years, Huntington will continue to provide students with the best education possible no matter what situation comes our way.”
Today, Huntington is pleased to announce an exciting addition to our remote and in-person learning capabilities: Huntington Study Hall, a new resource that offers students the opportunity to attend their virtual schools at an accredited Huntington Learning Center in a structured environment that is quiet and clean, with certified teachers on-hand to help with their studies throughout the day. Huntington Study Hall is also available online with certified teachers. Because each school district may require different formats, Huntington will offer flexible scheduling options to accommodate the needs of each student. Individualized tutoring and test prep programs are also available to complement Huntington Study Hall.
Huntington offers skill building programs, subject-specific tutoring, test prep for the SAT, ACT, and state and standardized tests, Homework Help and Huntington Advantage programs, as well as free weekly informational webinars. Because every child learns differently, Huntington recommends that students complete a comprehensive academic evaluation to find out where their academic strengths and weaknesses are, and enroll in a customized learning program designed to meet their individual needs.
“We know local students are faced with challenges this year and need to adapt to new learning environments and routines. Huntington Broadview Heights is here to help, and we are adhering to CDC and government guidelines and following strict cleaning and social distancing standards,” said Hernan Estrada of the Broadview Heights Huntington Learning Center. Estrada offers these tips to help prepare for the new year:
- Establish a schedule and routine.It’s not too early to begin implementing regular bedtime to ease the transition into school hours.
- Establish realistic expectations for work time.Evaluate what your own schedule and needs look like as you work from home and begin to outline how your student’s school schedule will fit in this fall.
- Set aside a dedicated space. Try different places in your home to find the perfect fit that will act as a homework corner/at home school space as needed.
- Most importantly, lean on your resources.Reach out to Huntington Learning Center and your student’s school to get tips and ideas for support.
