Mission Statement of the Learning Center: To create an environment in the Episcopal tradition that embraces the diversity of its learners and empowers them to realize their educational potential.
Learning Center Goals
- Facilitate the development of independent learning in all of our students
- To identify how each Learning Center student learns best
- To educate parents and faculty about best practices and innovative approaches to learning
- To serve as a liaison among students, faculty, and parents
- To provide accommodations plans for students with documented learning needs
Accommodations include techniques and materials that allow individuals with documented learning needs to complete school work with greater ease and effectiveness. Accommodations do not interfere with the academic integrity of SA. Contact your division's Learning Facilitator for more information.
Find Your learning style
St. Andrew’s understands that even the brightest students may need a little extra help every now and then. The St. Andrew’s Learning Centers help all St. Andrew’s students explore their individual learning styles, build on their learning strengths, and address specific courses or areas that present challenges.
Learning Center locations on both St. Andrew’s campuses are staffed with specialized learning facilitators who assess what each student needs and the best way to provide assistance. The Learning Center works with students who need help in specific subjects, students who need general assistance in improving their study or organizational skills, and students working to catch up after extended absences. The Center helps transfer students make a smoother transition to the St. Andrew’s academic program, and helps current St. Andrew’s students make the transition from Lower School to Middle School.
The Center also allows St. Andrew’s to be proactive in helping students. If a student’s classroom performance and test scores indicate a potential weakness in a particular subject, the Learning Center can take steps to help that child improve his or her skills before that weakness becomes a significant issue.
The Learning Center helps all St. Andrew’s students identify their individual learning styles – for example, a child might be a visual learner, an auditory learner, or a tactile learner – and offers advice on how to make the most of that style to enhance academic performance.
The common thread in every service the Learning Center provides is customized, individual attention that helps each student do his or her best.
