Learning Support Program

Learning Support Program Mission and Goal:
  • Our Learning Specialists and Coaches partner with grade level advisors and teachers to provide learning support for all enrolled students with the goal of creating independent and self-aware learners.
  • Our mission is to help each student achieve their learning goals by encouraging developmentally appropriate levels of responsibility, empowerment, and self-advocacy.
  • Our goal is to provide enhanced learning services through learning sessions with a Learning Coach. These services have an additional fee based on the frequency of meetings between the student and the Learning Coach.

Learning Support in Lower School

The Learning Lab for Pre-K through grade 5 is run by our Lower School Learning Specialist. Our Lower School Learning Specialist coordinates students' instructional/testing accommodations as well as provides targeted small group reading interventions for students who are reading below their instructional level. 

All Lower School students will have their reading progress assessed and tracked throughout the school year. Students who score below their instructional level will receive targeted reading interventions with the Learning Specialist within a small group setting.  Reading progress is continually monitored until that student is reading at their appropriate instructional level. Students who continue to struggle would be recommend for additional learning coaching. ICS can provide on-site learning coaching to those students for an additional fee. 
Indian Creek school is a co-educational, college preparatory independent school, located in Crownsville, Maryland.  Students in Pre-K3 through grade 12 receive a vibrant educational experience based on excellent academics steeped in strong student-teacher connections.
