Academic Resources & Support

Learning Support

Supporting success in the classroom

Learning Support ensures that students gain access to knowledge, skills, and information.By working closely with classroom teachers, students learn academic skills like active reading, expository writing, class participation, note-taking, and oral presentation.

Students also learn strategies to strengthen executive functioning, communication skills, and self-advocacy with the aim of building healthy study habits and self-awareness.  Every student’s unique needs and learning styles are valued.
We are committed to ensuring that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
