Learning Support Services (ESE)
The learning support programs at Covenant Christian are designed to support students with mild to moderate diagnosed learning needs. The goal of each program is to make college-preparatory education available to students with learning needs by training them to manage their learning expectations, thinking and communication styles. The goal is for a student with learning challenges to be able to use self-advocacy and other acquired academic skills to propel them to reach their full potential.
Students applying to Covenant Christian needing additional support as indicated in a 504, IEP plan, diagnosed learning difficulty, or other indicators presented during the application process will be considered for one of the programs.
These programs are an additional cost and are worked in during the student’s daily school schedule.
