Learning Lab (LL) is a proctored Study Hall, monitored by a Learning Lab Coordinator (LLC) who will facilitate an orderly environment while helping students adhere to a healthy work-break schedule. LL students have four 70 minute work periods, with a 15-minute break after the first and third work periods, and a 35-minute lunch break after the second work period. The fourth work period ends at 3:10, the end of the school day.
The LLC is present to ensure a good working environment and to help students stay on task, but cannot provide in-depth individual subject-specific tutoring. LL is a great option for students whose parents may work outside the home, creating the need for a supervised study environment. With LL enrollment, a student can be on campus four days per week. Learning Lab is available for students in 6th grade and above only, as it requires the ability to work independently.
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 (11:50am – 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.
The student must come to LL with his/her assignments for the day printed out for reference by the student and LLC. Together they will use these teacher assignments to plan the student’s schedule for the day. The student in LL has four 70 min. work periods, with a 15-minute break after the first and third work periods, and a 35-minute lunch break after the second work period. The fourth work period ends at 3:10, the end of the school day.
Parents or the Education Specialist must communicate to the LLC 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 6th grade and above, as it requires the ability to work independently with Trinity Prep curricula.
