Learning Support Overview
The Learning Support Program (LSP) provides additional academic support to qualified students with learning disabilities. SCS adheres to the biblical view that all children are equally valued by God. The Learning Support Program allows a child's full potential to be realized with strategic support from the SCS LSP staff. The overall goal is to provide students the tools and support needed to eventually function independently of additional accommodation.
Admission to the Learning Support Program requires proof of a documented disability that interferes with the student's ability to benefit from or participate fully in the general curriculum. This documentation must be provided by an approved outside professional (school psychologist, pediatrician, or psychiatrist). School personnel can provide recommendations to reputable service providers in the Santiago area.
Program Levels of Support
Student Support provides two different levels of services based on student need and staff availability. Services may include replacement classes, in-class support, assignment and testing accommodations, and direct instruction in social, organizational, and study skills. The Learning Support Program works collaboratively with general teachers to provide optimal learning conditions for success. Each student is provided with an individualized plan to help foster academic growth, enhance functioning in the regular classroom, teach self-regulation and self-advocacy, and, ultimately, pursue God's purpose for their lives.
