At SHA, our version of SEZP's Primary Person model is embodied in our Griffin Groups.
At SHA, we utilize a small group model where a handful of students are connected to an individual SHA teacher/staff member (GG Leader). This model is in place as on-site, scheduled, in-person time where students would work with their leader and peers to review current grades, problem-solve academic issues with students while encouraging self-advocacy, and promote personal accountability for their education.
Participation in Griffin Group is mandatory.
As the SHA Mission states; 'our students will gain admission into, find success within, and ultimately graduate from competitive four-year colleges, ready to achieve and contribute greatly to the world in which they live.' To that end, we provide extensive individualized support for students as they pursue this goal.
