Philosophy and Purpose
The PLUS (Providing Links for Unlimited Success) Program is offered at Mount St. Mary Catholic High School in order to provide remedial methods for students who have been diagnosed with learning differences. This program will provide students the opportunity to develop specific learning tools based on their diagnosed learning difference. PLUS will encourage students to acquire skills that are critical for their academic success
Students entering this program will be required to complete the regular Mount St. Mary curriculum. Students will work individually with a special education teacher and in small groups for one class period each day with the possibility of an additional 30 minutes before school each day. The program offers extended testing time, monitoring of subject grades, as well as organizational, test-taking and study strategies.
In addition to standard Mount St. Mary admission requirements, PLUS requirements include documentation of diagnostic testing, character references, and a personal interview. Students will apply with the standard MSM application and additional PLUS application. Psycho-educational testing completed within the last three years must also be included with the application.
Students entering the PLUS Program at Mount St. Mary Catholic High School will commit themselves to academic excellence. This excellence requires preparation, cooperation and consistency.
Parents of students enrolled in the PLUS Program will actively be involved in the academic progress of their child. They will be expected to attend scheduled conferences and to support the efforts of their student and the learning specialist. Progress is, in large part, dependent upon the willingness of parents to actively participate in their child's education.
