Specialized Academic Support

 Acknowledging the demanding nature of SouthLake Christian Academy’s curriculum, the institution provides numerous learning programs for students requiring extra help. The academic development center at the school offers Math and Language Enrichment Groups, a tutorial study hall, speech and occupational therapy, mental health counseling, and resources from the National Institute of Learning Development and the Search & Teach program. These resources cater to students needing different levels of educational support and assistance.

*Enrollment in programs offered through the Academic Development Center is based on a combination of criteria, such as evaluation results and teacher recommendations. Acceptance in these programs is at the discretion of the program director. These programs are not covered by general tuition.

“Our daughter needed help in math and reading. She was already benefitting from the smaller class sizes, but we were able to tailor her support in the classroom. Additionally, she receives consistent, one-on-one instruction in an environment favorable to her learning style. She looks forward to her time with the ADC teacher and definitely feels more confident in the classroom because of the private instruction.  The ADC staff helps her with organizational and time management strategies that will have long-term benefits.”
