The primary focus of our Learning Lab is to provide a warm and encouraging environment in which to support students in their academic endeavors. Our Learning Lab Coordinator (LLC) oversees students’ daily work and, as needed, provides them specific organizational, motivational, and life skills that facilitate their increasing capabilities and independence in all facets of learning: reading for information, asking questions, analyzing material, reasoning and making logical deductions, researching, and using the information. Good study/learning skills equip students to complete their own work through high school and beyond.
At the beginning of each Learning Lab day, our LLC collaborates with the student to identify:
- The assignments due, and prioritizes them appropriately
- The resources needed to complete the assignments, and how the student would access those (i.e, texts, websites, worksheets, lab manuals, etc.)
- The goals for that Learning Lab day
During the course of the Learning Lab, the LLC monitors student progress.
Students take regular breaks, including Lunch break (11:45am – 12:25pm)
In the last hour of Learning Lab, the LLC reviews the student’s progress through the day’s assignments and communicates to parents the status of those assignments: Complete; In-progress long-term; Need completion at-home. Parents thus know which assignments, if any, need to be completed later that day.
Parents are responsible for communicating to the LLC, prior to each Learning Lab, any approved modifications or exemptions to Trinity Prep assignments. If none have been communicated, the LLC assumes the student is responsible for ALL assigned work, and on the assigned due date.
Learning Lab is available for students in 5th grade and above, as it requires the ability to work independently with Trinity Prep curricula.
