Discovery Center Program
It is our goal at Heartland Christian School to help every student achieve all that God intends for their lives. Our desire is that every child would be successful in the classroom as well as outside the classroom. In order to assist them to meet with success, we offer some special services.
The Discovery program has been established by the National Institute of Learning Disabilities (NILD) in Norfolk, Virginia. The goal of the program is to help children with learning difficulties that have experienced academic frustration and/or failure in the classroom setting. These children have average to above-average intelligence but are not able to learn by traditional classroom instruction because of perceptual difficulties.
Discovery students have one-on-one educational therapy sessions in their deficit areas two times a week. Each session lasts about 80 minutes and is outside the classroom setting. The remainder of the student’s schedule is spent in the regular classroom situation.
The cost of the program is $375.00 per year in addition to the regular tuition which includes a testing fee.
