Learning Strategists

Our in-house learning strategists are available to help students at St. Michael's improve study, time management, organizational, and other critical skills - and especially those students for whom understanding their learning style is essential to meeting the demands of the curriculum. The goal of our expert learning strategists is to promote self-advocacy as a way to boost academic performance. Students learn to develop executive functioning skills, which aid in planning and organization, and they gradually acquire or enhance skills in the following areas.

  • understanding individual learning style
  • study practices
  • time management
  • test preparation
  • note taking
  • memory
  • textbook reading
  • report writing
  • problem solving
St. Michael's maintains high academic standards; our learning experts coordinate with faculty members on how to recognize and understand the uniqueness of each mind in the classroom. Finally, and with an eye toward college, our strategists prepare graduates for the challenges associated with navigating large institutional systems and finding the support they will need after leaving St. Michael's.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 establishes the policy that otherwise qualified persons with disabilities may not be discriminated against in any federal or federally assisted program. In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act extended this law and gave federal civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities. A private school/diocese that receives federal funds (such as the federal lunch program, tax exemptions, school vouchers, library services, and technology) is subject to federal statutes prohibiting discrimination.
