Learning Center

The Learning Center is a therapeutic educational program located in a public school setting. Students may present with emotional impairment and/or specific learning disabilities. The Learning Center emphasizes a multi-disciplinary approach that provides clinical consultation, ongoing counseling, behavioral programming, and instruction in social pragmatics in conjunction with a focus on academic achievement. The program curriculum is aligned with the Massachusetts Common Core Standards with accommodations tailored on an individual basis to assist each student in accessing the curriculum.

The goals of the program include reintegration into the mainstream, a return to a community high school, diploma acquisition, and transition planning for entry into college or a post-secondary training program. Transitional planning and programming are individualized for each student to assist them in achieving their goals. This may include preparation for college based testing, work-based learning experiences, vocational exploration and soft skill job development, preparation for learning permit testing, and life planning skills such as budgeting.
