Learning Support Program

The Goal of the Learning Support Program (LSP) is to assist students at all grade levels to maintain and develop as successful and independent learners with positive self-advocacy skills. The key component to the success of the program is communication between the student, parents, and teachers. 

LSP is a referral program. Referrals for this additional support can be made by a staff member, student, or parent. Individualized goals and strategies will be developed to assist the student in meeting his/her fullest potential. No grades are assigned. To participate in Learning Support, please complete and return the Learning Support Participation Acknowledgement which will be made available via the Lion Portal.

Note: In Upper School, the LSP program is designed to be “fluid” — students may enter the program as needed or exit the program as they become successful.


An additional fee per session is charged and is based on grade level. Fees for the current academic year can be found on the Tuition and Affordability page — Here
