Learning Resource Center

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) helps students to strategize and organize their studies and works to develop strengths while supporting weak areas.

Professional research confirms that children learn in a variety of ways, and it is important to understand and address these differences so that we can effectively prepare students to become successful, independent learners. Students who learn differently are taught specific skills such as time management, critical thinking, comprehension (reading and language), note-taking, test-taking and higher-order thinking in all subject areas in order to thrive in the rigorous academic environment at LJCDS.
The program offers one-on-one and small group remediation as well as academic support that is fully integrated with each student’s academic program; it focuses on advocacy and builds a strong relationship between student and specialist.

The LRC serves students from Tiny Torreys–Grade 12 and is fee-based. Our staff includes educational therapists, speech/language pathologists and tutors. Students come to the LRC during their free periods or during specially arranged times.
