Learning support offered

We focus on two main questions in our support services:

1. What do we do when a student does not get it?
2. What do we do when a student already knows it?

These guide the learning support services as we help students that need help to catch up, or push forward into advanced learning.

Advanced placement courses in the high school offer students a wide range of academic rigor. The Catalyst project offers high school students a chance to pursue a topic of their choice and build a project around that special interest.
