Academics

Upper School Academic Support

Academic Support is staffed by two educational experts who monitor and help support students who are having challenges in their academic classes, as well as students who have learning differences that require support or accommodations. Students meet with these education experts based on their specific needs in a small group setting, where they can receive the appropriate services.

Support Services

The role of the Academic Support Coordinator is to support student learning and enhance classroom instruction. Through communication with teachers, faculty meetings, grades and comments, as well as advisor observations, the Academic Support Coordinator gathers information and analyzes its meaning. Subsequent strategies and/or recommendations will then be pursued as necessary.

Participating students meet as needed with the Academic Support Coordinator. The purpose is to work on specific skills related to academics and/or to assist in the development of executive functioning skills. Students with documented learning disabilities may qualify to receive additional time for classroom and formal examinations (Extra Time Policy).
