Academic Support

The Academic Support Department works with students with disabilities—learning, physical and/or psychological. Faculty within the department help students develop and strengthen study skills and organizational techniques, and they offer alternative test-taking methods to “level the playing field,” enabling students to reach their full potential.

Students may receive services if they have a diagnosed learning disability. They may also be referred to Academic Support by a principal in consultation with advisors, families, teachers and counselors.

The department also works with the general faculty to increase their awareness of and ability to teach students with different learning styles.

This handbook introduces department faculty, explains how students may access services, and outlines educational evaluations, learning plans and accommodations.
