PA Academic Forum Masthead

Please join us for our next Academic Forum!


When:   Tuesday, October 14, 6:30pm

Where:  Little Flower Theater

Why:     Learn about academic resources at LaGuardia

Who:     LaG parents and students of all grades



This month we review the wide range of educational resources for students – from IEPs and 504 accommodations, to the guidance suite, the library and the online universe of reference and study sites.


Dr. Mars will join Guidance & Program (class scheduling) staff, student Arista tutors, and the Academic Forum co-chairs and department liaisons to take your questions.


We will distribute tutoring schedules and other resources at the meeting.


We hope you can join us!
