Part of what helps a student succeed academically is the environment they learn and study in. At Randolph-Macon Academy, our Study Hall helps students complete their coursework and study for exams in an environment where they can stay focused and work without distraction. This can help them improve their academic performance, as well as their ability to be efficient and stay productive. From 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., from Sunday through Thursday, students have Study Hall for this exact purpose. Study Hall offers a dedicated period of time when students can study in their dorm rooms or at the campus library.
By using this time to study or complete their work, students are able to learn in an environment that meets their academic needs and allows them to stay focused and become more confident. Here’s how our Study Hall benefits students.
Our Study Hall Can Help Students Improve Their Productivity
Our Study Hall can help students stay engaged and focused, as well as help them be their most productive selves. All boarding students have Study Hall from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Sunday through Thursday. Our cadet life supervisors monitor students’ activity during these times. Upperclassmen study in their dorms, given access to their computer and the Internet for one hour each evening, while students needing more time for Internet access can request permission to use our library’s workstations. By using Study Hall hours to get their work done, students can become more self-motivated and take greater responsibility for their academic performance.
Students at Our Private Academy Can Benefit if They’re Struggling
For students placed on academic probation, there is another specialized Study Hall available during the afternoons. Our college preparatory school’s Academic Probation Study Hall gives those students the opportunity to get their work done while under faculty supervision so that they receive the dedicated support needed to get back on track. These sessions are also free from any distractions, which helps establish good habits while fostering self-discipline and dedication.
Students in this specially appointed type of Study Hall also attend mandatory tutorial sessions for 30 minutes during school days. This approach helps ensure students have the ability to rebound when they’re struggling academically, giving themselves the opportunity to get back on track as soon as possible.
Study Hall Can Instill Good Habits for Life After R-MA
Although students at our private academy are supervised by adult figures when they get work done during Study Hall, they will need to take full ownership of their learning and studying outside of class hours while at R-MA and once they enter the college or university level. Therefore, students who make a regular habit of ensuring they use Study Hall hours productively enhance their sense of self-discipline. Taking responsibility for academic success is a skill students ultimately need to develop on their own. By developing the self-discipline and good habits that Study Hall promotes, students can pave the way for future success at university and beyond.
