Students continue to grow in the process of becoming self-aware, understanding their unique learning style and developing lifelong learning skills such as time-management and organization, effective communication and study skills, and self-advocacy. Students are served by a relational team approach to intervention and to academic support. The team led by the US Learning Specialist is comprised of the student, his/her parents, teachers, Upper School Dean of Academics, Student Dean, Upper School Counselor and Advisor. Additional support is available from subject-specific tutors and ADHD/Executive Functioning work coaches that are independently contracted and that have been invited to work with students on Cannon’s campus.
Recognizing a relational approach to student support requires time. The support program strives to meet the needs of our students with learning differences through developmentally appropriate focus goals. Juniors and seniors are provided assistance with requesting College Board and ACT testing accommodations.
