Academic Resource Center
The Academic Resource Center is here to support students as they navigate the academic landscape at Archbishop Carroll (ACHS). An ACHS education will challenge students to grow and the Academic Resource Center will provide support and guidance for students along the way.
Services through the Academic Resource Center are available for students with diagnosed educational, learning, or psychological plans. The Educational Resource Center monitors grades, improves student study skills, provides weekly tutoring, and communicates with parents. Additionally, the Academic Resource Center provides writing assistance and virtual and in-person peer tutoring with National Honor Society students.
The Academic Resource Center focuses on students who have current Individualized Educational Plan’s (IEP), 504 plans and educational psychological evaluations. Students who need academic support to compensate for learning differences will be provided an Archbishop Carroll Accommodation Plan based on prior IEP’s and/or current educational psychological evaluations. Accommodations will be provided based on the recommendations outlined in their educational psych evaluations and implemented to the best of the teachers’ abilities and resources to help the student succeed in the classroom. Students who have a formal plan will also be given the opportunity to enroll in an academic support class as part of their daily schedule. During the Academic Support Class, the Special Education teacher will provide review and re-teaching opportunities of key concepts and support in executive functioning skills such as organization, time management, study skills, and anxiety. Each student’s individualized needs and goals are also monitored and reviewed through a series of progress monitoring and performance based assessments.
Archbishop Carroll’s Academic Resource Center helps transition students with learning accommodations to postgraduate opportunities, including college, technical schools, or other career options.
