The Academic Skills Program is a fee-based elective program for students in grades 1-12, with support provided for students in kindergarten as needed. We emphasize learning strategies to support executive function skills throughout our program.
The primary goal of the program is to enable and empower students to reach their educational potential. In-class accommodations, including testing accommodations, are based on the student’s current testing and the accommodations that can be provided by Ravenscroft. Curriculum modifications are not offered.
To qualify for the program, a complete psychoeducational evaluation needs to have been completed by a licensed clinician demonstrating that a Specific Learning Disability is present which is impacting academic success.
Academic Skills is an elective course in middle and upper school. Students are provided with explicit instruction and guided practice in learning strategies to support Executive Function skills such as effectively managing their materials, time and the informational demands of their current curricular courses. Students develop effective research-based learning strategies, providing them with the tools needed to become independent learners and to self-advocate.
