At Stone Academy we know that a friendly and comfortable academic environment is vital to a student’s success. While each campus offers a traditional range of lounge and study spaces for students to use, it is our support services and caring staff that makes Stone Academy a great place to learn.
Some of our extracurricular activities and support services include:
Student Counseling Services
We understand that going back to school can be stressful and sometimes students need more structured support. Licensed counselors are available as a resource to any student that would like to work through a particular life event or that may need directions to external services. Students that would like to set up a session should contact their Program Manager.
A graduate’s first position is extremely important in developing a successful career path. Great care is taken by the institution in helping to equate a student’s interests and abilities with the most desirable job opportunities available upon graduation. To this end, Stone Academy takes great pride in offering Professional Development classes to its students. These classes include self-packaging, telephone usage, cover letters, and different styles of resume’ writing, interview techniques, and employer/employee relations. The Placement Director reviews all resume’s and assists the graduate in his or her job search. Continuous placement assistance is provided for all graduates in good standing of Stone Academy.
Some students will encounter classes in their course of study in which they need more directed help than a study group might provide. Students can get in touch with their Program Manager to inquire into having a peer tutor. The Program Manager will work to schedule a tutoring session with someone that volunteered to tutor in that particular subject area. Students interested in becoming a peer tutor should contact the School Director or their Program Manager.
Phi Beta Lambda
Students looking to engage in their community are welcome to join Phi Beta Lambda. Previous projects have included running a blood drive, raising money for cancer research and participation in other local fundraisers. Students looking to join Phi Beta Lambda can email Louise Pelletier at LPelletier@Stone.edu.
Community Health and Wellness Fairs
As a community partner, Stone Academy has put on health and wellness fairs at local churches and community centers. Here our Nursing and Medical Assisting instructors enlist students to help take basic vitals on participants and provide information on local health services and walk-in clinics. This is a great way for active students to both help their community and increase the mastery of certain clinical skills.
Loan Repayment Assistance
You’re not alone when it comes to student loans. Stone Academy has partnered with Inceptia, a division of National Student Loan Program (NSLP), to provide you with free assistance on your Federal student loan obligations to ensure successful, and comfortable, loan repayment. Inceptia’s friendly customer representatives may reach out to you if your loan (s) become delinquent. Inceptia is not a collection agency. We’ve partnered with them to help you explore a wide variety of possibilities such as alternative repayment plans, deferment, consolidation, discharge, forgiveness, and forbearance options. Inceptia will stay in touch with you via phone calls, letters, and/or emails to help you find answers to your questions and solutions to your issues.
