Academic Center

Open to all students, the Academic Center is located outside of the main quad area and adjacent to the library. The center pairs UC Davis students in work-study with Davis High students to offer tutoring services. The predominant work of the center is to ensure all students receive free on-site support when needed. All tutors are recent college graduates or currently enrolled at the University of California, Davis.

The Academic Center proudly presents: Academic Center Awards! 

Every month ten amazing students will be recognized for their hard work throughout the previous month. If you are willing to improve your English proficiency or grades or maintain good grades you are already in the running! These students will receive a well-earned 10-dollar gift card and an entry to win an end of the year grand prize: a Yearbook! (Three grand prizes total). These awards are open to all students.

The Academic Center’s very own UCD Tutors will nominate students based on the following criteria: grades, effort, attendance, assignments, and organization.

See our rubric which tutors will use to nominate students. Students, if you have any questions or concerns please drop by  the AC and speak with Ms. Mayra Chavez-Alcaraz.
