Services at the LSC

The Learning Strategies Center offers a wide range of services that support students in maximizing their educational experiences, depending on their particular needs. Its overarching purpose is to empower students for a lifetime by helping them truly understand how they learn. For students with diagnosed and documented conditions that impact learning, the additional goal is to teach them how to play to their strengths, shore up their weaknesses, and effectively advocate for themselves in different learning settings.

  • The Academic Accommodations Program

    Students who access accommodations through a formal learning plan at LWHS participate in a multi-year, scaffolded, student-centered process designed to help them internalize a deep understanding of their own learning style, increase awareness of their own internal resources, set appropriate forward-looking goals, and develop the confidence and skills in self-advocacy that they will need to flourish in college and beyond.
