For decades. Solebury School has recognized that not all college-bound students learn the same way. 我们的学习支持计划成立于20世纪80年代, 这是当时进步的努力, and it continues to offer transformative experiences for students today. The program helps students achieve their potential through understanding their strengths, 克服弱点, 教他们为自己辩护. 多年来, 参加我们学习支持项目的学生都是优等生, 杰出的艺术家, star athletes, 以及赌博十大平台排行学校的学生领袖.
当我们遇到符合他们水平的学生时，学业成功就随之而来了, 他们感到安全, supported, and respected, and from there, we can foster growth and encourage students to push their own boundaries. At Solebury, 我们认识到, capable students come with a variety of learning profiles; therefore, we offer a variety of Learning Support programs aimed to serve all students on our campus.
The teachers advocate for all students and help to arrange for the accommodations that will best help them acquire and demonstrate the skills and knowledge taught in their classes. However, a key goal of the program is to give students the tools and the confidence to advocate for themselves, 因为他们在大学里也需要这样做.
Our grade level English Foundations classes are designed specifically for students who struggle with language-based learning tasks. The classes are taught in a small group setting by an English teacher who is also a Learning Specialist, and the classes are specifically designed to meet grade-level English curricular goals while addressing each student’s individual learning needs. To build on strengths and bolster weaknesses in reading and writing, the English Foundations teacher differentiates instruction and paces assignments to provide appropriate support for developing skills and academic growth. Space is limited, and admission into the program is dependent on academic screening and noted challenges. 这门课要额外收费.
*Students who need additional support surrounding executive functioning may opt to apply for both English Foundations and Bridge.
The Bridge和Bridge Plus programs help students whose success is hindered by ADHD, 执行功能挑战, 或者难以用文字表达思想. Students take a full schedule of classes and meet with a learning specialist in small groups of up to three to help them stay on track, 完成作业, and develop strategies to achieve the success their intelligence merits. This program can serve as a “bridge” as students transition out of the Individualized English program. For some students, it is a bridge from a different academic environment to Solebury’s rigorous, 门大学预科项目. For others, it connects a past of good intentions but missed assignments and incomplete work to a brighter future of confidence, competence, 为完成任务而自豪. 满足学生的需求, 我们提供不同级别的桥接支持:桥接+, which meets nearly every day; Bridge, 每隔一天开一次会, and we also offer a trimester-by-trimester Bridge support plan for students who feel they may not need a full year of Bridge support. 空间有限，这些课程需要额外收费.
在索伯里，我们努力支持所有的学习者. While many students benefit from the formal Learning Support programs, 其他需要较少密集和/或较少频繁的支持. 对于这些学生，我们提供Boost.
