To provide individualized learning support, as needed, to any UCC student The CENTRE FOR LEARNING meets this mandate by:

Reviewing and communicating information from a confidential educational evaluation that has been administered by an educational psychologist or other qualified professional The Centre for Learning encourages parents to share educational evaluations with the school so that information on their son’s learning strengths and learning needs can be shared in a confidential manner with his teachers.

Parents or students with any questions about this process are encouraged to contact Mary Gauthier in the Centre for Learning office.
