Academics

Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center works with parents, teachers, and students to provide unified, accommodating programs for students who need support developing reading, written and oral language, mathematics, study and/or organizational skills.
 
The Academic Resource Center, located on the second floor of the Walsh Science/Library Building down the corridor from the faculty workroom, consists of two part time (Grades 6-9) and two full-time (Grades K-5) reading specialists and one full-time (K-Grade 9) mathematics specialist.
 
These trained faculty members
  • provide support, usually one-on-one, to students who need to develop reading, written and oral language, mathematics, study and/or organizational skills
  • perform educational assessments
  • attend grade level meetings
  • work with the child's teacher(s) to provide a unified, supportive program.
The reading specialists also work with small groups of first and second graders who would benefit from a small group, structured approach. They are part of the teaching team and see children five days a week for forty-five minute periods. The mathematics specialist also provides small group enrichment experiences to students in grades three to five.
