Philosophy and Purpose
The PLUSS 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. PLUSS 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 learning specialist or 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, PLUSS requirements include diagnostic testing, character references, and a personal interview.
Students entering the PLUSS Program at Mount St. Mary Catholic High School will commit themselves to academic excellence. This excellence requires preparation, cooperation and consistency.
