Learning Support

Asheville Catholic School has support programs designed to assist each student in reaching his or her full potential. Services are offered in several areas as described below.

 

Learning Support Program
The Learning Support Program addresses learning issues by providing support at three levels: student, teacher, and parent. The goals of the Program are:
  • To assist the family and school community in identification of students needing additional educational support. These needs include mild learning disabilities, learning concerns, and attention disorders.
  • To provide support to reinforce regular classroom instruction for students who are appropriately placed in a mainstreamed learning environment.
  • To consult with teachers in providing appropriate and successful instruction to students in the mainstreamed environment who can be successful in the Diocese of Charlotte system. Student Educational and Accommodation Plans may be provided for students with diagnosed learning concerns.
  • To support parents who are seeking information, support, and/or services for their child who requires additional assistance (Learning Support Assistance, assessment/evaluation/treatment by community professionals, alternative school placement).

Academic Support Department

Asheville Catholic has a full academic support department consisting of a full time academic support teacher who assists student in reading and math, as well as two part-time Orton-Gillingham trained teachers for students who face the challenges of dyslexia.

Middle School Study Hall
Asheville Catholic School offers a weekly Middle School Study Hall. Students have the opportunity to work  on their math skills, review the week’s lessons, and prepare for upcoming tests and quizzes. Students are also welcome to work on homework or study for other subjects during this time.  There are no fees for this program.
Counseling
Throughout the school year, our school counselor works with children individually and in small groups. Through these services, academic and social interventions are provided to help students move toward academic success.
