Learning Enrichment Center
Promoting academic success and inspiring students to achieve their goals.
The Learning Enrichment Center provides one-on-one, continuous academic support for students.
The Learning Enrichment Center has three primary goals: to maximize individualized learning enrichment opportunities for our students, to serve as a resource center for teachers and parents and to offer services and resources to the communities we serve.
What We Offer
The Learning Enrichment Center is a place where students can seek academic support in any subject area at anytime. Areas include:
- Other subject content areas
- Understanding assignments
- Study habits
- Confidence-building activities
- Referrals for anxiety
- Informal assessments for possible recommendation to any outside professionals (psychologist, speech and language pathologists, etc)
The Learning Enrichment Center process looks different for each child, because we serve students with a wide range of academic needs, including those with learning differences.
Teachers regularly review student progress and consult with an LEC faculty with any concerns about student academic performance, and plans are created to work alongside parents to help the student. During LEC Class, students work one-on-one with a trained instructor to meet academic goals. In the event that the LEC faculty determines an assessment needs to be completed for extra outside help, the LEC instructor works with closely with parents and teachers to complete this process, and if there are suggestions of accomodations or modifications, the LEC will help facilitate appropriate interventions.
The Enrichment Center faculty are trained on the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading and writing. This is an instructional method developed in the early 1900’s by a neurologist and is proven to be effective for many students who have difficulty with reading, writing or spelling. Our well-trained and certified Orton-Gillingham instructors use this approach as a powerful tool to help students master this subject area.
All of our teachers in the Learning Enrichment Center are certified teachers who collectively have over 60 years of combined experience working with students.
