Educational Support Services
In keeping with our personalized approach to education, the Educational Support Services Program (ESS) is an integral component of our community and is accessible to every boy, from those who benefit from more support to our strongest learners who seek extra challenges. Whether you are dropping in for help on a paper or using the learning center regularly, our learning specialists are here to meet your needs. They will work with you to help you understand how you learn best, and, in doing so, they’ll help you develop the habits and skills to succeed here at Boys’ Latin, in college, and in life beyond.
Our lower school program focuses on skill development in core academic areas. Acknowledging that young boys learn at different rates and that they are just starting their academic journey, the focus is fostering a solid academic foundation of skill development.
As students transition to middle school, the expectation for independence and self-advocacy increases. Additionally, academic expectations grow in an age-appropriate manner and our middle school program focuses on helping students to manage these increased demands.
The Patrick Radebaugh Learning Center is a dedicated space in the upper school building that is staffed by two full-time learning specialists. Our upper school learning specialists focus on strategy based skills necessary for academic success, such as organization, time-management, study skills and the writing process.
