Learning Resource Center
The primary aim of the Learning Resource Center (LRC) at St. Catherine's is to provide direct homework assistance and individualized tutorial instruction for select students, grades 6-12, in order to promote higher levels of academic achievement as well as to keep up their interest in school.
Students are assigned to the LRC according to academic need by the Assistant Principal.
It aims to teach and reinforce the following skills:

Increase students' motivation with regard to their school work
Improve test taking and results

Encourage the school community to take a greater interest in young people's success
The Assistant Principal will assign students to the Learning Resource Center based on the following general conditions:
Ongoing review of student performance along with teachers and guidance counselor
Parents request the placement following a conference with Assistant Principal
There appears to be academic difficulty in one or two subject areas

The Learning Resource Center is open for students Monday through Friday from 7:15 a.m. until 2:15 p.m. Students are also able to be in our Extended Day Program
Extended Day is an extension of our resource program into after school hours and runs from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. Students are assigned by the Assistant Principal to a group that meets two days a week (Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday). If you feel your child would benefit from Extended Day, please contact Assistant Principal, Mr. Tillman.
