Academics

Academic Support

The Academic Support Program is designed to facilitate student success in our academic setting for an Indian Creek student.
It is our mission to help students achieve their academic goals by encouraging responsibility, empowerment and self-advocacy and to partner with families to provide support for all students in the program with the goal of creating independent and self-aware learners.

Lower School Academic Support Program

Academic support is available to students in Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade in a variety of ways. As an “All Kinds of Minds” School of Distinction, all Indian Creek School faculty are trained in the program, which makes teachers fluent in differentiated teaching and assessment strategies. These techniques give teachers the tools to teach individual students in the ways that they best learn.

Additionally, the Lower School Learning Specialist is available to help students who need extra support academically, and with executive functioning skills.

The Lower School also offers on-site auxiliary services, such as speech and language pathology, occupational therapy, and tutoring through independent contractors.

For more information on Lower School Academic Support please contact Lower School Learning Specialist Charlotte Gibboney.

Upper School Academic Support Program

Academic Support classes are scheduled in place of a general study hall and occur just as frequently as every other academic course. The program offers enhanced academic services for an additional fee.

For students in grades 7-12, the Academic Support Program emphasizes the development and/or improvement of general organizational skills, planning, prioritizing, task initiation, and time management. Students have a scheduled Support class , which includes one-on-one meetings with the Academic Support Instructor.
