Learning Lab

At Southland Academy, we realize that each student learns differently. Our school wants to ensure that each student is given the opportunity to achieve at his or her intellectual peak. We strive to meet this goal by using teaching methods that complement the student’s individual learning styles.

The Learning Lab helps to identify students in the 1st through 12th grades with potential learning difficulties who might need tutoring services and/or accommodations. Through multiple tiers of interventions, the Learning Lab can customize instructional strategies for each individual student. Changes in instructional methods may be suggested for use in the classroom and/or at home and accommodations for testing can be given with appropriate documentation.

Initially, students must meet the entrance requirements for Southland Academy. Based on grades, standardized test scores, teacher recommendations, psychological evaluations, medical evaluations, etc... Teachers or parents can refer a student to the Learning Lab. All information will be reviewed to determine the appropriate Learning Lab program for the student. Progress of students will be monitored closely and communicated with parents on a regular basis. Tutoring services are available to anyone (1st -12th) who need extra help in specific subjects. Accommodations to classroom and testing require a diagnosis from a medical or psychological expert and will be determined on a case by case basis.

The Learning Lab can provide tutoring services as well as classroom and testing accommodations but may not be able to meet all the needs of a student. Even though a student may receive accommodations, modifications to Southland Academy’s college preparatory curriculum will not be made. All students at Southland Academy must meet the same standards and will receive a college preparatory diploma after passing required courses.
