Learning Support

Helping students understand how they learn can be the key to their academic success.

Our dedicated learning support teachers ensure that all our students understand how to learn effectively. This support empowers students with the skills and confidence to thrive at Forest Ridge, in college and beyond.

Our Learning Support program supports our students and faculty in several ways:

  • Student learning support: Learning support is offered in a variety of ways, both individually and in small group sessions, with teachers and with learning specialists as needed. Students will strengthen their academic skills, create organizational strategies and develop the confidence to self-manage their academic workload.
  • Student self-management skills: Strong self-management skills are vital in life. Students learn skills such as time management, self-advocacy and organizational strategies.
  • Professional development: Through classroom observation and professional coaching, our learning support teachers collaborate with faculty to incorporate diverse learning styles into the class curriculum.
