The Learning Lab
The purpose of the Learning Lab is to connect all students with the mindfulness resources and learning strategies for reaching their full potential as they pursue rigor, relevance, and application in our robust liberal arts curriculum. The Learning Lab at Wakefield School serves as the learning and wellness hub for students and is staffed by the Educational Specialist Team and the Counseling Team.
It is also the home of the Academic Resource Center (ARC) and provides all students access to the following:
Explicit instruction in executive function skills from the Educational Specialist Team and faculty throughout the school year, as appropriate by division
Tutorial support from expert faculty in small group settings
Personalized academic plans for student support and extension based on strengths and struggles in various academic courses; these may be designed by a student’s homeroom teacher, advisor, Educational Specialist faculty, or administrators
Access to and scheduling for more intensive privately-paid tutoring with recommended providers who can aid students on campus during study halls or after school
Academic accommodation plans for students with up-to-date psycho-educational or neuropsychological testing on file
Students may be eligible for enrollment in additional Academic Resource Center programming for either learning support, enrichment, or independent study courses as identified by qualified testing.
