Learning Support

King’s Ridge Christian School seeks to provide a college preparatory learning environment where students are challenged to reach their potential. In the transitional years of 5th-6th grade, many students require assistance in learning how to manage time, organizational skills, and how to study and prepare for tests. These skills are addressed as part of the student academic experience. By the time a student reaches 7th – 8th grade, these skills should be practiced regularly. If support is still needed students these skills may be addressed through increased attention of learning support.
