The Laudare Program was created to meet the academic and organization needs of students with a specific learning disability. Laudare is the Latin verb “to praise.” Students in the Laudare Program receive assistance and accommodations in daily academic support classes in the areas of test preparation, homework support, and assignment completion. Students are taught study skills and organizational techniques; grades are frequently monitored by the Laudare teachers.
Laudare teachers work closely with students, teachers, and parents to facilitate academic preparedness, organization and communication. One of the keys to the success of the Laudare program is 5-to-1 student to teacher ratio within the Laudare class. The program is designed to promote an inclusive, supported environment in which all students learn about faith, bioethics, and the importance of personal responsibility and self-advocacy.
