Marist School recognizes that not all students learn in the same way. In order to help each student reach his or her full potential, Marist makes every effort to understand and provide for the diversity in learning styles of each of our students. In the Marist Academic Center, learning resource specialists work with students to help them develop learning strategies and study skills to assist them in becoming independent learners. They also work closely with faculty to help them better understand the diverse learning needs of students in each of their classes. A Marist Learning Plan can provide additional support for those students who have documented learning differences.
Students with diagnosed learning differences may be eligible to receive academic accommodations based on the recommendations provided within a current psychoeducational evaluation. However, accommodations granted at Marist are those that do not create classroom adjustments for other students or faculty. In order to maintain the integrity of the Marist educational mission, not all recommendations contained within an evaluation can be provided.
A note on extended time for college entrance exams: The extended time accommodation on SAT or ACT exams is determined by individual college testing agencies. Although Marist can help with requests for accommodations, all decisions are made by either the College Board or ACT.
