Reading Support

Our reading teachers and reading specialist have one overarching goal: that your child becomes an independent, confident, and enthusiastic lifelong reader. Students who need extra help in achieving reading competency can receive the support they need at no extra cost – this service is covered by tuition. Reading support can be integrated into the classroom or made available on a “pull-out” basis. Working one-on-one and in small groups, our specialists use a variety of reading programs and high-interest media to help students decode words in text and apply this skill to their daily reading.
