At St. Paul’s Episcopal School, our commitment to providing the highest quality college preparatory education in a Christian environment extends to all of our students. While the standard-sized classroom works well for many students, the learning needs of some are better met in a small group environment providing more frequent interaction and closer supervision.
In response to these needs, St. Paul’s has created the Alternative Instruction Program (AIP), which provides an appropriate educational setting for students with diagnosed learning disabilities and/or attention disorders. The goal of this innovative and comprehensive program is to prepare these students to succeed in college. Additional support includes our state of the art technology giving students more tools to enhance learning.
To qualify for our AIP program, a student must have a recent or updated diagnosis of a learning disability and/or attention disorder. Other data will also be taken into consideration as part of the admissions process such as standardized test scores, academic ability, observations, input from classroom teachers, work samples, and emotional or behavioral factors.
Student progress in AIP is assessed regularly to ensure that program enrollment adequately meets the student’s educational needs.
