elcome to the St. Luke's Learning Lab. I strive to make a creative, dynamic, and safe place for students and love watching them develop a love of learning that extends beyond the St. Luke's campus.
The purpose of the Learning Lab is to teach strong study skills such as test-taking, note-taking, and solid work habits, which help in the classroom. With a diagnosed learning issue, it can be more difficult to keep up with the speed of the class, or the distractions of a classroom environment. The Learning Lab is an adjunct to the classroom that provides students an opportunity to review the materials they are being taught.
The lab is not a tutoring program. There are no modifications made to the curriculum or to the requirements for completing each grade. The Learning Lab was created to help address the accommodations set by educational testing results which must be on file for qualified students. It is designed to provide each student with the tools to assist him/her in becoming successful on his/her own.
Middle School Learning Lab is a class that meets daily. During each class, the student is responsible for identifying subjects where he/she is struggling, needs extra practice or general review. It is not set up for completion of homework. The Learning Lab instructor has constant communication with each student’s teachers, but it is the responsibility of the parents to direct any questions on curriculum/grades to the individual classroom teacher. The lab will provide quiet testing accommodations with extended time if needed. Each student will sign a contract committing to completing homework, participating in class, a positive attitude, and outstanding classroom behavior. These are vital to the success of each student. The charge of the Middle School Learning Lab is $500.00 per semester.
High School Learning Lab enrollment is based on academic needs. The lab is provided to help students with learning issues. Students are scheduled to meet in the lab in lieu of a study hall. The Learning Lab provides a quiet atmosphere for test preparation, study or review. It is not a tutoring program. It is the responsibility of the student to make an appointment with the lab. This ensures that each student enrolled in the lab receives the one-on-one help that he/she needs. The Learning Lab will meet appropriate accommodations defined in the educational testing on file, such as distraction-free and extended time testing. Each student will sign a contract committing to completing homework, participating in class, a positive attitude, and outstanding classroom behavior. These are vital to the success of each student. The charge of the Upper School Learning Lab is $500.00 per semester.
