Additional Services: Our Education Specialist
Trinity Prep is committed to a policy of inclusion as part of our commitment to serving a diverse student population. Some students are very challenged by our college-prep curricula and expectations, due to learning differences. While we cannot provide a separate learning path for these students, we can work with the student and parents to identify the student’s needs, and make appropriate modifications for a successful journey at Trinity Prep.
To best serve students with learning differences, we utilize the services of an Education Specialist (ES). At Trinity Prep, this service will be available to all students and families, but no classroom or curriculum modifications will be made for students who are not working with the Education Specialist. The Education Specialist is a support role designed to assist teachers and parents in their goal to best teach their students. This support will be ongoing and available throughout the service period (academic year) as outlined below. An individualized Modified Academic Plan (MAP) will be created for each student working with the ES.
The MAP utilized by Trinity Prep for students with learning differences is similar to a 504 plan utilized in the public school system. We can and will make appropriate and reasonable accommodations to a student’s learning journey at Trinity Prep, but do not offer alternate classes or tracks for students, due to our commitment to remain a College-Prep environment.
