Dr. Tenley E. Albright Academic Center
Fall Registration Announcement
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 6th, and run through Friday, December 23rd. In its first two years, the Academic Center has supported over 50 registered student athletes ranging from fifth grade through college and graduate students.
During the weekdays, the Dr. Tenley E. Albright Academic Center serves as an academic study center within the Club’s library on the facility’s mezzanine. 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 academic blocks each weekday (Monday-Friday)*
- 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
- 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
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.
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.
