Learning for Success

Developing Leaders and Scholars

In Academics

The Learning for Success Program is a complete structure of support designed to meet the needs of individual students based on their diagnosed learning differences.

In the Learning for Success Program, we look at every student as an individual and work with them to reach their potential and instill a joy for learning they can carry with them throughout their lives.


The program includes the following:

  • Academic Strategies classes for 9th through 12th grade selected students
  • Tutorial management
  • Classroom observation and support
  • Documentation that SPX is accommodating students' needs
  • Math and reading programs, as needed
  • Summer programs
  • College preparatory curriculum designed to meet the needs of individual students
  • Parent support program
  • Consultation and assistance in resolving learning difference issues
  • Individualized accommodation plans


Helping students realize their potential 

Our Purpose: To help students with diagnosed learning differences realize their own potential and teach them how to achieve academic success without modification to the college preparatory curriculum.
