The transition to Baylor's Upper School from another school -- or from our Middle School -- can be intimidating for some students. While we hope that your child will embrace Baylor’s academic culture and become comfortable with taking intellectual risks, we also acknowledge that many academic skills must be developed through repeated practice. Please don't hesitate to contact Learning Center Director
Jennifer Averbeck to learn more.
What is The Learning Center?
The Learning Center serves as a low-stakes, supportive environment where students further develop their academic skills. With a staff of six experienced learning specialists and a school psychologist, the Learning Center provides specialized academic support in all courses, as well as guided instruction in time management, study skills, and organization. They work closely with our Baylor faculty to ensure that students receive the most individualized support plan possible.
Where is the Learning Center located? When can my child visit The Learning Center?
Located on the bottom floor of the Probasco Academic Center, The Learning Center is open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. They also offer extra math help in the library Monday - Friday from 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. The drop-in availability allows for students to receive help at any time during the day. If your child doesn’t have a free period, he or she may still come by during Extra Help, Community Time, and lunch.
How can parents help?
Please encourage your son or daughter to take advantage of Extra Help with his or her teachers and of the resources available in the Learning Center. Programs such as Extra Help and The Learning Center maximize the amount of one-on-one instructional time your child receives—don’t let your child make it to the midterm without taking advantage of these resources! Also, be on the lookout for optional Learning Center programs heading into first semester exams!
