Roxbury Academic Support Program

Cheshire Academy has a long and proud history of assisting students with their individual learning needs to meet the rigors of a college preparatory program. The goal of Roxbury Academic Support Program is to develop proactive, independent, and competent learners who take responsibility for their education and academic success.

Our unique program is designed to strengthen the ability of our students to discover and utilize tools and strategies which allow them to become more competent and productive learners. Placement in one of the following levels of service is determined on a case-by-case basis in conjunction with the Roxbury Staff, Admission, Health Services, and the applicant’s records. Consideration is also given to parents, teachers, and administrative requests for placement. Please note, the Roxbury Academic Support Program is an additional, fee-based system, which is not included in tuition.

Roxbury 4 - This level of instruction consists of 1:1 instruction - 4 days/week

This is the most comprehensive level of the Roxbury Academic Support Program. Roxbury Level Four pairs an individual student with an instructor, one-to-one, for four class periods weekly. This time is scheduled as part of the student’s normal academic day. The Roxbury instructor acts as a learning specialist who addresses the student’s academic strengths and weaknesses, enables them to improve their self-advocacy and executive-functioning skills, along with assisting the student to reach their highest academic goals and potential. At this level, teachers provide the Roxbury instructors a weekly report based on the student’s performance in their classes. The Roxbury instructor then communicates this information to the parents in a comprehensive weekly report.

This fee-based program costs $11,900 for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Roxbury 3 - This level of instruction consists of 1:1 instruction - 3 days/week

The same services as Roxbury Four – but the student meets with the instructor three times a week. Weekly reports are also provided to the student’s parents based on teacher feedback.

This fee-based program costs $8,900 for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Roxbury 2 - This level of instruction consists of 1:1 instruction - 2 days/week

In Roxbury Two, the student meets one-to-one with the instructor two days per week and reports are sent to parents every other week (bi-weekly).  This service is tailored more toward the student who needs some additional direction and strategies in order to develop the tools necessary for a greater level of independence and academic production.

This fee-based program costs $6,950 for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Roxbury 1 - This level of instruction consists of 1:1 instruction - 1 day/week

This service is designed to serve the student who does not need support daily, but could benefit from some additional instruction to develop their organizational and planning skills. Checking in once a week with an instructor allows the student to monitor and increase their success. Reports are sent to parents on a monthly basis.

This fee-based program costs $2,250 for the 2019-2020 academic year.
