Academic Support Programs
The Learning and Academic Support Department guides students in the development of skills and strategies for learning, personal effectiveness, and self-management that are key to success in high school and beyond.
All KYHS students are offered a comprehensive range of classes, services, and programs based on a variety of student needs and learning profiles: Peer tutoring labs, workshop instruction, and academic coaching to facilitate the development of executive functioning skills such as time management, organizing and planning, effective note-taking, test preparation and test-taking.
The department coordinates academic intervention for students with grade-related issues as well as targeted support for diagnosed disabilities in the form of curricular modifications and accommodations.
A program of small group instruction with a learning specialist and speech and language pathologist is available. It includes the supervision of a case manager, who oversees the overall academic progress of a student, coordinates any necessary accommodations and modifications to the curriculum, and serves as a liaison between teachers, students, and parents.
