Through our partnership with The S.E.A.L. Foundation, Saint Teresa of Calcutta School offers a state-of-the-art specialized program through our implementation of the Pathways Approach Program, which ensures students with learning differences can thrive, achieve and succeed. Through the Pathways Approach Program, students with learning differences have full access to a Catholic education with the accommodations and modifications needed to support their unique learning profile.

The Pathways Approach Program provides:

  • On site special education tutor
  • Access to Orton Gillingham trained teachers
  • Understanding of learning differences through professional development for all school staff
  • Review of existing IEP to verify we can assist
  • Classroom accommodations and modifications of the curriculum tailored to student need
  • Differentiation to meet the needs of a variety of learners

The Pathways Approach welcomes many students with dyslexia, high functioning autism, executive functioning, dysgraphia, language processing or written expression differences, dyscalculia (Math), and non-verbal learning differences. We help students who need to have specialized support for learning acquisition.

The Pathways Approach Program does not at this time have the resources to help students with oppositional defiant disorder, personality or psychotic disorders, or very complex learning profiles.

Students in the Pathways Approach Program will receive support from special education tutors either one-on-one or in small groups. Students will be fully integrated into the academic and co-curricular life of the school. The program’s special education tutors work collaboratively with classroom teachers to ensure that each child receives the instruction, accommodations and modifications that they need to reach their potential.
