Our Learning Lab is a resource program designed for students with documented difficulties in learning, attention, and/or assessment. Documentation must be within the past three years. This program is comprised of two elements: Learning Lab class and Watch and Consult distinction. Each student has an Instructional Support Plan (ISP) that includes appropriate documentation of diagnosis and testing as required by the College Board and accommodations defined by Maranatha policy as recommended by the psychological or educational assessment.
Each Learning Lab class has a maximum of eight students and are placed together by grade level. This class focuses on supplemental education for English, Math, study skills, and organizational skills to ensure that all assignments are completed. The Learning Lab also provides a place to meet accommodations such as retesting or providing extended time from tests in other classes.
The Watch and Consult students receive the appropriately documented accommodations in their regular classes and meet regularly with their guidance counselor to discuss academic progress.
