Academic Support Center Program

The Academic Support Center (Room 611)

The Mission of the Academic Support Center 

Our mission is to provide individualized support to students with learning differences through the development of academic strategies and self-advocacy skills. We work closely with our students' families and teachers in order to encourage a student's growth, both academically and developmentally. We believe that every student has the ability to be successful, and it is our mission to help students find that path to success.

Private Tutors

The Academic Support Center can also recommend private tutoring resources for students who may need more learning support than a STARS tutor can provide.
