The Goal of Learning Support:

The Goal of Learning Support is to assist students at all grade levels to maintain and develop as a successful and independent learner with positive self-advocacy skills. The Learning Support Program (LSP) is a referral program. Referral is made by a staff member, student or parent for the additional support. Individualized goals and strategies will be developed to assist the student in meeting his/her fullest potential. No grades are assigned. An additional fee per session is charged.

*It is important to note that the program is designed to be a “fluid” program as the students may enter and/or exit the program as they become successful.

The key component to the program is COMMUNICATION between student, parents and teachers.

The cost is $25 per session. Rates for Lower School Learning Support differ from MS/US. The cost is $20/session. To participate in Learning Support, please complete and return the Learning Support Participation Acknowledgement which will be made available via the Lion Portal.
