Mastery of Self Freshman Study Hall Program SERVITE HIGH SCHOOL The purpose of the Mastery of Self Freshman Study Hall Program is to demonstrate the importance of getting one’s work done and to provide further motivation toward that end. Experience has proven that the consistent, daily completion of homework is one of the singular ways that students take seriously the perfection of themselves. Students in need of extra academic assistance will have consistent contact with teachers and students who are motivated to help. Furthermore, the program provides teachers who want to engage the Formation program more fully with a regular opportunity to do so. Enrollment The program is mandatory for all freshman students who earn less than a C on any Progress Report, Quarter Report Card, or Semester Report Card. Once grades are posted for each grading period, parents will be notified via TeleParent and email. Enrollment for each session is based solely on the previous grade report.
