The Learning Center of Richmond
Did you know Community Christian School offers an onsite remedial service? The Learning Center of Richmond (TLC) is available to assist students through private instruction. TLC helps students improve educational performance, develop study skills and prepare for academic examinations.
This service is not only accessible to CCS students, but it is available to other learners in the community.
The Learning Center is dedicated to providing academic assistance primarily to Community Christian School students whose families choose these services as a part of SES (Student Educational Support).* Students within the community at large may also seek to utilize the services of The Learning Center*. The Learning Center provides remedial and accelerated instruction for students in content subjects as well as study skills and other academic assistance.
*There is an additional charge for these services.
Steps to Enroll in The Learning Center
Schedule Pre-Service Testing
Typically, our initial work with each student involves a parent and teacher questionnaire that is followed by diagnostic testing. In order to assess client strengths and weaknesses, plan the most appropriate program; provide an objective basis for comparison during and after educational services, an educational evaluation is a prerequisite for entrance into TLC Programs. (A $25.00 deposit is required to hold the testing time and is applied to the testing fee.) A written report and a consultation to discuss the results are included in our educational assessment.
Meet with the Learning Center Staff to Review Assessment
We use the data gathered from testing to tailor an individual learning program for each client. Parents and guardians are then informed of the resulting plans through a conference. During the conferences, test results, and an initial individual instruction plan, with suggested time recommendations are offered.
Establish Tutoring Times
Time recommendations will be offered at the assessment review conference. While we cannot guarantee individual student success, research has shown that intensive bombardment of the brain produces more rapid change. If an intensive program is not possible or considered necessary, TLC will work with the family and tutor to develop an appropriate schedule. (A minimum of two sessions per week are recommended as a baseline.)
