Learning Services

St. Paul’s School for Girls is a community of learners where girls grow and develop into confident, young women who are not afraid to have their voices heard. Throughout their time in the Upper School, our students are challenged and stimulated by our faculty and staff in a variety of core classes and electives. Our teachers care for every girl and take time to foster relationships with each of their students. We are mindful of the diverse nature of student learning and our teachers are trained in providing opportunities for each student to learn in the best possible way for her learning style.

Learning Specialist

In the Upper School, the learning specialist works with teachers, students, parents and administrators to ensure that each student’s learning needs are met. Whether it is through organizational support, consultation on lesson planning or rubric design, or addressing individual concerns regarding a student’s learning, the learning specialist is available as a resource.

The learning specialist reads and processes independent evaluations. From this information, she develops a Formal Education Plan, which identifies the student’s individual strengths and challenges as well as reflects the recommendations for accommodations made by the evaluator. This plan is developed with parents and the student, and once signed, it is reviewed with the student’s teachers. The learning specialist serves as a contact for parents regarding their daughter’s progress and ensures the communication of accommodations to faculty. For parents who desire additional information about educational resources, learning specialists can provide names of tutors and examiners for outside evaluations.

In addition, the Upper School learning specialist facilitates the process of applying for accommodations for College Board and ACT testing.

Stepping Program

Some students may need additional support when entering ninth grade. For those students, a program called Stepping provides additional support with organizational and study skills in a once-weekly group meeting. Students in the Stepping program also meet individually each week throughout the first semester with the learning specialist to help them progress through the ninth grade successfully.

Learning Center

The Upper School Learning Center serves as a resource to families, faculty, and students. The learning center provides a comfortable space for students and faculty to meet with the learning specialist, an area for small workshops and study groups, dedicated spaces for testing accommodations, and iMac computers on which students can practice a variety of academic skills. Excellent resource materials are available and highlight best practices in teaching and learning.
