The Nicholas Academic Centers Virtual Services
The Nicholas Academic Centers offers robust virtual services to current students, alumni and parents of the program. Our Academic, Social Services, College Access and College Success departments offer a variety of individual and group meetings, learning sessions, parent meetings, and fun activities on a daily and weekly basis.
Our virtual services have launched partly in response to our centers’ current inability, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, to open our doors for in-person services. The Nicholas Academic Centers values the health and well-being of all of its students, families, and alumni. We will be monitoring state health mandates to guide our practice and our future plans of re-opening our physical centers. In the meantime, we know that our students, alumni, parents and stakeholders still need support, especially during this time when our community perseveres through the hardships related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our centers’ staff have been working remotely since March 17, 2020. In the last month, our centers have been able to connect with all 568 of our students and conducted academic check-ins, provided tutoring services, and identified ways to allow students to borrow NAC laptops to help with studying at home. Our NAC social workers have conducted over 130 health and wellness assessments, checking in with vulnerable members of our student population to help provide resources and support. Our College Access team are also working closely with our current seniors, providing them with support as they begin making college decisions. Lastly, our alumni team has been in constant communication with our alumni, whose colleges have also shifted into virtual learning environments, to provide them resources and support. Although we have been successful with reaching out and helping out our student and alumni population, we want to make it easier for everyone to access our services.
Moving forward, our students, alumni, parents, and community stakeholders will be able to easily access our virtual services by scheduling appointments via our online portals. We look forward to continuing to provide services that help promote academic achievement, college preparation, college-going, and college graduation amongst Nicholas Academic Centers’ Scholars and Alumni.
We are here to serve and can’t wait to explore these new virtual frontiers with everyone.
