The Academic Support Program at Holy Child encourages and guides young women in the development of learning skills and personal management strategies that lead to building their self-confidence, independence, and passion for learning.
The Academic Support Office offers all students support in the areas of math, writing, study skills, and executive functioning. There are also academic support courses and coaching for students with a diagnosed disability.
These services are based on a variety of student’s needs and learning preferences. Students can be recommended to the Academic Support Center based on an identified learning disability and/or ADHD.
However, the Academic Support Center also coordinates academic intervention for students referred by faculty for academic support.
"A girl should choose Holy Child because it is a place where she can truly learn life skills and build confidence both in and out of the classroom. The teachers want you to succeed, and they are willing to put in extra time to make sure that happens. I have never met so many people who look forward to going to school and classes every day because they are excited to see their friends and feel like they can truly be themselves."
