Student Support Services

Welcome to Student Support Services

Student Support Services is designed to assist students in grades 3rd through 12th diagnosed with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) who need additional academic support to be successful in Trinity Christian Academy’s learning community.

Trinity’s academic emphasis is on standards-based instruction and college preparation. All students complete rigorous coursework within the general education classroom and graduate with a standard high school diploma.

Trinity’s Student Support Services is not an Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Program. Because we are not an ESE program, we do not offer the same services, programs, or accommodations listed on Individual Educational Plans (IEPs), 504 Plans, psychoeducational evaluations, or other formal/informal plans. We do not offer special education or therapeutic services. We do not offer a modified curriculum or modified assignments, and we do not offer a grade/credit recovery program.

What We Do...

The Student Support Services Team provides academic support, progress monitoring, and accommodation implementation in a positive learning environment.
