  • Regular communication with parents
  • Parent-teacher conferences
  • Academic planning and monitoring
  • College exposure
  • Character Education
  • Goal setting and tracking with advisees
  • Monitor readiness for school by checking for uniforms, assignment book, homework and supplies

After school programming

Gary Comer College Prep Middle School offers several programs after school to supplement the educational day of our scholars. 

Office Hours: From August through June after school our scholars can choose to attend office hours for individual teachers from 3:20-4:20pm. 

LaSalle: If a scholar does not complete their assigned homework and turn it in the day it is due, the scholar will receive LaSalle from their teacher and be required to attend that same day from 3:20-4:20pm. LaSalle was created and implemented to reinforce that the scholar’s day is not over until everything due has been completed.

Sports/Clubs: Gary Comer College Prep Middle School offers different sports from fall to winter to spring.  Practices, meetings, and/or games are often held after school and scholars must be in good academic standing to participate.  More information on Gary Comer College Prep Middle School’s sports programs can be found under the extracurricular activities tab.
