SouthLake Christian Academy is committed to identifying and implementing resources to meet the needs of a variety of students. With the goal of helping our students realize their potential, we offer a variety of learning services through our Academic Development Center (ADC).
The staff of the ADC has the responsibility for diagnostic testing, tracking students' progress, and working to ensure that students are equipped to work to the best of their abilities, thereby achieving their optimal academic potential.
For those elementary students needing therapeutic educational intervention in the areas of reading and written language, the ADC offers Language Enrichment Groups which utilize the Wilson Language method. Pre-testing, post-testing and multi-sensory techniques are employed to meet the needs of students in these groups. Participants meet twice weekly in an age-appropriate small group setting.
For middle and high school students, the ADC provides opportunities to participate in tutorial study halls. These study halls provide directed assistance in areas of time management, organizational skills, and general tutoring. In addition to the tutorial study halls, the ADC coordinates optional private tutoring as needed.
Finally, the ADC implements the National Institute of Learning Development (NILD) program for students who meet the stringent parameters to qualify for this focused therapy intervention. NILD is a successful model of intervention for children with learning disabilities based upon an innovative approach designed to meet the needs of these students.
Enrollment in any of these programs is based on a combination of criteria, such as evaluation results and teacher recommendations. Acceptance in these programs is at the discretion of the Director of Academic Development. These programs are not covered by general tuition.
