Student Support Services

Our Program

The Student Support Service is designed to assist students in grades 3rd through 12th diagnosed with learning disabilities who are in need of additional support in order to be successful in Trinity Christian Academy’s learning community.

Our dedicated Student Support Services Team creates an academic plan tailored to each student’s individual needs. The Student Support Services Team provides academic support, progress monitoring, and accommodation implementation in a positive learning environment.

Our goal is for every student to achieve their full academic potential.

With the cooperation of the student, parents, and teachers, we believe that potential can be realized.

What We Offer

  • The Student Support Services Team oversees and facilitates the implementation of the TEAM Plan.
