The Aquinas program is available to students with one or more learning differences. A psychoeducational evaluation completed within the past three years is required before a student can be considered for Program eligibility. Once enrolled, an updated evaluation is required every three to five years. There are two tiers of support within the Aquinas Program:
Accommodation Plan Only – Eligible students receive classroom accommodations designed to meet the student's individual learning needs. Students are required to meet with a Learning Specialist at least once per quarter. Parents should contact the Dean of Student Support to initiate an Academic Accommodation Plan.
Aquinas Instruction – Students with an Academic Accommodation Plan in grades 6 through 12 are eligible to register for a class period of Aquinas, and students fully enrolled in Aquinas receive one credit per year towards graduation requirements. Students meet four days per week with a Learning Specialist who focuses on helping each child with his/her individual learning needs. Please contact the Dean of Student Support for enrollment information.
