We are pleased to inform you that registration for the Fall Session of the Dr. Tenley E. Albright Academic Center is now open. Our Fall Session will largely follow the MA public school calendar beginning on Tuesday, September 7th, and run through Friday, December 17th. In our first year, we had over 50 student-athletes registered ranging from sixth grade through college and graduate students.
The Dr. Tenley E. Albright Academic Center serves as a student study center during the weekdays according to the below schedule. A space free from distractions, our members participating in a remote-learning program can use the space to participate in their study program of choice, and our other skaters can use the space for academic study before, between or after skating sessions. The Club will provide on-site supervision during established weekdays, with both a morning and early afternoon 3-hour time block. Members must pre-register to use the Academic Center unless it is after hours or on the weekends. Registration preference will be given to athletes pursuing a full-time, remote-learning program.
There will be two proctored academic blocks each weekday (Monday-Friday).*
- 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
- 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
*Students can request to use the center during the unproctored midday hour.
Members in a remote-learning program that wish to use the space must register online using this form. You must select an academic block each day but they may be different throughout the week. To register to be a part of this program, please complete the Academic Center Registration Form (link provided above).
If a member is attending public school and is doing remote learning on a part-time or full-time basis, they may use the study space and pre-registration using the above link is also necessary. During those two 3-hour academic blocks, however, priority in the Academic Center will be given to members enrolled in a full-time, remote-learning program. All skaters entering the Academic Center will be asked to sign-in, and the Club will set-up an additional quiet space, if necessary.
As part of the program, skaters will also be provided with recommendations for tutors, college admission advisors, career counselors, guidance counselors, testing centers and other important resources.
- Skaters should be 10 years old or a minimum of 4th grade, based on ability to work without 1-1 supervision.
- Skaters will be asked to leave all materials, other than what is needed for schooling, in their locker.
- Gaming, social media, cell phone conversations, and other distracting activities will not be allowed.
- No food will be allowed.
Health and Safety Guidelines
- 6-foot distancing will be enforced.
- Everyone must wear a mask.
- Space will be disinfected in between morning and afternoon blocks, and in the evening.
