Academic Support Program

We believe that each learner is uniquely created in the image of God. It is our prayer that we can help to build the competence and confidence of those who struggle to learn.

NILD/Discovery Educational Therapy

Discovery Educational Therapy is a one-on-one learning experience in which a student with diagnosed learning difficulties meets with a trained therapist for 80 minutes twice a week. This therapy provides individual cognitive and perceptual stimulation in areas that need strengthening. Development of cognitive functions is a key component. The goal is to develop the student into an independent learner in the classroom and in life.
