Lawrence Academy recognizes that everyone learns differently and has unique academic passions and needs.
"My learning coach has instilled confidence in me with organization, efficiency in completing assignments, and her warmth helps me stand tall in the LA community. A coach will always be there in moments of doubt."
Bridget Walter, Class of 2020
LA's Learning Support program offers one-on-one sessions with a learning coach. Coaches are full or part time members of the faculty that are fully integrated into the academic program. Coaching sessions occur, either once or twice per week depending on student need. These sessions are designed to assess specific student needs and teach them strategies that they can apply in the context of the student’s coursework to become independent learners. Typical skills that coaches work on with students include:
- help with understanding directions and expectations
- organization of materials and digital files
- planning of assignments
- time management
- reading comprehension strategies
- writing skills
- study skills
- self-advocacy skills
Learning Support is meant to be transitional and lead to independence; the goal of the program is to have students work their way out of the program through demonstrated success.
