- Laudare Program for Students with Learning Disabilities – application (IEP, SAP and other testing records must accompany the application). Students with diagnosed learning disabilities are invited to apply to our Laudare Program. Laudare is for students who are able to access the general education curriculum with a high level of academic support during the school day. Latin for “to praise,” students receiving Laudare services enjoy daily academic support classes to assist with test preparation, homework support, and assignment completion. Students are taught study skills and organizational techniques, and grades are frequently monitored.
Laudare teachers work with other teachers to ensure students learning needs are met. Case managers closely monitor students academic progress and communicate frequently with parents. Laudare is a new program we offer here at Saint John Paul the Great, with low student to teacher ratios. We are proud to launch this unique program as we seek to promote an inclusive, supported environment in which all students learn about faith, ethics, and the importance of personal responsibility and self-advocacy.
