The Academy Program has been at Menlo-Atherton for more than 20 years and is committed to developing the academic, personal, and critical thinking skills needed for its students’ success in today’s information-based society. The Academy is a small school within a school and we strive to create a nurturing environment where a love of learning can naturally occur. Our goal is to ensure that the students in the Academy reach their long term goals by partnering them with a mentor in a career field they are interested in.
As a mentor, you will meet with a student to help them plan (through guided activity) for the future. Our first mentor event is scheduled for Friday, November 14th, 2008. We will have a total of four events throughout the school year (November 14th, January, March, and May – dates TBD).
It is never easy to escape the office during the week, but if you are able to commit to four days (one and a half hours each visit) between now and June you will truly make a difference in the community and our students’ lives.
