Since all children are equally valued by God, the Student Support Team (SST) provides additional academic support to qualified students with learning disabilities.
Admission to the Student Support program requires documentation of a 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).
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 Student Support Team 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.
