Middle & Upper School Learning Support
Beginning in the Admission process and continuing through to graduation, our Learning Resource Center encourages open dialogue around students’ strengths as well as their challenges, utilizing the former to help students navigate the latter. The primary focus of learning support at San Domenico is student self-advocacy. The Dean of Learning Support works regularly with students on refining this skill, as well as with faculty and mentors to ensure students feel both understood and supported. The more students can understand, embrace, and articulate their learning profiles, the better teachers, learning support specialists, and the school can execute the individualized support plan. We work closely with families to arm students with the tools and voice necessary to excel in San Domenico’s rigorous college preparatory program, as well as the higher education that follows.
Middle School Learning Resource Center
The LRC program provides specialized academic support with the MS Learning Specialist. Students in the LRC program are eligible to waive Spanish and receive academic support two times per week during this class period. The LRC program is a fee based ($50 per session) service and families are billed in November and March.
Tutoring referrals for all grade levels are provided by the Learning Specialist to families who request them. Availability of tutors on certain days/times is not guaranteed. Tutors must coordinate their schedules with the Learning Specialist. All tutors who meet with students on campus must have current TB and LiveScan clearance approval from the school before meeting with students.
