Work with an Academic Coach

Our teachers continue to work with their students virtually to assist them in achieving their goals. We’re Here to Help Staff and Department Directory will assist you in starting your journey.

FCTC’s Academic Coaching program provides one-on-one academic tutoring, mentoring, and advising to FCTC’s Students and the St. Johns County community at large.

The primary role of the Academic Coaching program is to provide support to FCTC students who have tested at the equivalent of 9th grade and above, but lack the required level of basic skills for completion of their CTE program.

The secondary role of the Academic Coaching program is to provide an additional layer of support to FCTC students who are in need of assistance with the academics associated with their CTE program.

Additional duties of the Academic coaches include assisting FCTC students with obtaining the skills necessary for a successful transition into and completion of postsecondary education or training by providing career planning, digital literacy and workforce preparation activities, and providing support to FCTC’s CTE educators with the integration of the Adult Skills Building (ASB) frameworks into their curriculum.

Students are able to receive Academic Coaching online and in-person as follows:

  • Mon-Fri: 7:00am to 10:15am and 11:00am to 2:15pm and 5:15 to 8:30pm
  • Mon-Thurs: 7:00am to 10:15am and 11:00am to 2:15pm

When not in the classroom, Academic Coaches are performing the duties associated with the administration of the program, to include one-on-one instruction, classroom visits, and providing FCTC educators assistance with lesson planning and integrating the Applied Academics for Adult Education (AAAE) frameworks into their curriculum.
