PATHWAY COACHING

Once enrolled with City of Promise, students in grades 5-12 are assigned a coach to support their academic success.

 

In addition to collaborating with teachers and administrators to address academic and behavioral needs, our coaches ensure students are connected to after-school activities, summer programs, and employment opportunities. Coaches plan and chaperone field trips, give kids a ride when they need it, and support parents in navigating paperwork and systems that will lift up the whole family.
