Supporting Approaches to Learning Together (S.A.L.T.)

The S.A.L.T Program provides comprehensive support services to assist students in graduating successfully. The program is designed to allow first-generation, Pell-eligible/recipient and/or students with learning differences to explore and engage their educational and personal goals within a learning community by offering academic coaching and mentoring.   

The S.A.L.T. Program is available to students as long as they are enrolled in the Academy. Students are able to sign up for the program through the SALT Application. Once the application is completed the students will have an intake appointment to determine eligibility. Once eligibility is determined the students will receive a S.A.L.T student success plan. Students will be meeting with the SALT Advisor once a month or additional time if needed to track progress, discuss academics, review graduation & career plan and assist with any other adjustment needs. You may conctact to inquire about a S.A.L.T. application at any time.
