aim resource

AIM Study is a guided study hall that allows students to have quick and easy access to a variety of support systems at GCHS. At the heart of AIM Study, though, is the focus on strengthening students' executive functioning skills. Through whole-class, small-group and 1-on-1 sessions, students develop strategies for organization, emotional regulation, self-advocacy, and study/testing skills.

This period is scheduled in the place of a student's Ram Block period & allows them access to the MARC, Write Room & teachers' office hours. Students will still attend all mandatory Rams Block lessons during this time.

AIM Study Staff:

  • Danielle Christopherson, Executive Functioning Interventionist

  • Janis Hope, Program Assistant

  • Reggie McClure, Program Assistant

  • Pete Armata, Program Assistant
