The Middle School Director of Academic Support, Patrice McElligott, and Upper School Director of Academic Support, Alexis Nemer, provide individual assistance for students to develop skills in organization and time management, test preparation, note taking, and study skills.
Support for students with documented learning differences or disabilities (LD) is coordinated through the Director of Academic Support and includes an annual Formal Education Plan (FEP) meeting with the student, his or her parents, and faculty. The FEP meeting results in a signed agreement outlining the academic accommodations agreed upon.
Students, parents and teachers are invited to contact the Director of Academic Support to discuss a possible learning difference. Referrals are made to local, outside agencies when warranted for full psycho-educational evaluation, and/or for professional tutoring.
