Learning Support resources, including registration forms, can be found in DrewNet, our internal community network.
Every student needs effective study techniques, as well as strong writing, reading, reasoning, and research skills. Competence in these areas has broad implications in terms of students' current and future academic success. Drew is committed to supporting students with varying learning profiles, including those with documented learning disabilities. Thus, Drew offers supplemental assistance in these areas through its Learning Support Program.
Developing solid academic and time-management skills and challenging each student to reach his or her personal and intellectual potential are central to Drew's mission. We take great pride in the range of our students and our ability to serve their varied needs. We achieve this by providing a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum with an excellent faculty in a cooperative, small-school environment and by offering individual assistance through the Learning Support Program.
