Center for Learning Advancement


Student Support Services


At Collegiate, we strive to foster overall student development through our academically rigorous college preparatory program. Student support services are provided in each division to help students reach their potential.


Collegiate applies a team approach to ensure all needs are met. The Center for Learning Advancement, school counselor, and/or health support services coordinator collaborate with teachers and advisors to create individual learning plans that support each student.


Center for Learning Advancement


Fundamentally, Collegiate embraces the unique growth and development of every student in our community. This is evident in the daily and ongoing work of our teachers. Still, in an effort to meet every student where they are, there are times when students will need additional support and/or enrichment above and beyond what can be provided in the classroom. The Center for Learning Advancement is a critical and valuable resource that complements our classrooms and allows additional differentiation to take place in our community.


The Center for Learning Advancement (CLA) is prepared to equip every student with the essential skills for academic success. The CLA employs a combination of full and part-time instructors to provide an integrated approach to supporting students in academic areas during the school day and provide academic enrichment for students that have intellectual needs and curiosities above and beyond the current curriculum.
