Learning Center

In Boulder Creek Academy’s Learning Center our special education faculty will work with your child (if required) to strengthen fundamental skills essential for the learning process and support them with academic coaching.

Students benefit from services that develop phonemic awareness, passage comprehension, attention and concentration capabilities, operational and problem solving abilities, and working memory. Comprehensive testing is used to assess current level of ability and to track progress.
