Christ Covenant Student Services offers Lower School Learning Lab and Middle School Directed Studies. Both programs are designed to assist students with professionally diagnosed learning differences.
Replacement Reading and Academic Support are available to students with mild to moderate dyslexia.
Program Application Process
Students must follow the regular CCS admissions process. In addition, the parent must provide all previous standardized tests, report cards, and psycho-educational evaluations. CCS students will be given priority placement, and new students will be accepted as availability allows.
Kinder Learning Lab
Early intervention is key to a child’s future academic success. Partnering with parents, Students Services seeks to identify possible learning differences in a child’s ability to process language.
First through Fifth Grade Learning Lab
1st, 2nd and 3rd Learning Lab offers two programs, Replacement Reading and Academic Support. 4th and 5th grade students may in enroll in Academic Support only. We do not offer Replacement Reading for 4th or 5th grade students at this time.
Replacement Reading meets 50 minutes a day, 5 days a week. This program is geared for the dyslexic student needing intense reading instruction.
Academic Support is a program that allows the student to take some or all of their classroom assessments with the Academic Support teacher.
Directed Studies serves students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade who need extra support in study skills, test taking, time management, organization, and homework.
Extra academic support is available to students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade who have been professionally diagnosed with a learning difference, primarily mild to moderate dyslexia.
New students wishing to enroll in Directed Studies, must follow the regular CCS enrollment process. All previous standardized tests, report cards, and psycho-educational evaluations must be on file with the Student Services Director in order to be considered for admission. Current CCS students are given first priority; new students are accepted as space becomes available.
Middle School Directed Studies
Directed Studies is available to our middle school students, as an elective divided by grade, and exists to meet the needs of students who have a professionally diagnosed learning difference, mainly mild to moderate dyslexia. The Directed Studies teacher instructs the student in time management, study skills, homework, and offers extended testing time. There is a maximum of five students per grade.
