    Roxbury instructors serve as academic coaches, partnering with students to establish attainable short and long-term goals. They are trained professionals who act as liaisons between students and their teachers. In this role, the instructors coordinate with faculty when appropriate to enhance each student’s performance. The instructors in the Roxbury Program work closely with parents, faculty, dorm parents, counselors, administrators, and the health team.
