Academic Resource Center

Christian Brothers’ Academic Resource Center (ARC) is designed to help meet the various learning needs and academic challenges within the student body.  Our goal is to ensure that students have access to the resources and support they need to be successful within the school’s college-preparatory curriculum.  Working with students to develop their academic skills and to expand their capacities for self-advocacy, the ARC furthers our mission of academic inclusion using new methods adapted to the needs of today’s learners.

Staffed by teachers representing core academic disciplines as well as teachers who have experience working with students with learning differences, the ARC is part of a quartet of support services for students that also includes academic counseling, health and wellness counseling, and pastoral care.

Students who need assistance with core academic content, homework organization and prioritization, and study skills may be enrolled in a one-semester ARC class.  These classes are designed for small groups and aim to meet the individual needs of each student.

Drop-in services are available for students who have a diagnosed and documented learning difference on file with the school. Students may access the ARC for assistance with classroom accommodations, testing, and homework.

For further information about the services the ARC provides, securing classroom accommodations for your student with a diagnosed learning difference, or pursuing testing to identify a learning difference, please contact Ms. Margaret Buggy,
