Through a partnership with Varsity Tutors, we can offer students a variety of academic support options at no cost, including 24/7 chat tutoring in Spanish or English in any subject, SAT prep, essay review, and celebrity hosted on-demand courses, and more.

SWAT (Students Who Achieve Together) provides peer-to-peer academic aid for all students.  This one-on-one environment promotes active learning, creates meaningful social connections, and gives students a better understanding of their course work. With S.W.A.T, students walk away with the confidence and improved study skills that help them excel in any individual pursuit. 

SWAT is available every day in the HUB during Knight's Block. Please reach out to Mrs. Welty at to make an appointment. 

SWIPE a SWAT is an additional service provided by SWAT tutors to give academic support to classroom teachers. SWAT tutors are available to come to your classroom to help with skills-based lessons (one-on-one or small group instruction). SWAT tutors are happy to help with the writing process, document analysis, lab reports, most levels of math, etc. If you are interested in signing up for SWIPE a SWAT please contact Jen Welty at
