Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We present a content-rich curriculum that engages the neurodiverse student body. At Drew, you will benefit from our deep understanding of the cognitive and social-emotional needs of the teenage brain.
The Herbst Learning Center (HLC) provides a space dedicated to learning support for all students—not just those with diagnosed learning differences. These services include access to assistive technology, such as Learning Ally, and the scheduling of make-up and extended time testing.
Drew students with diagnosed learning differences have access to Learning Specialists for the acquisition of academic and testing accommodations, 1:1 meetings for strategic planning, skills-based learning, and guidance for self-advocacy. Learning Specialists also collaborate with Drew faculty to integrate best practices into the classroom and ensure positive academic and social-emotional outcomes for all students.
Furthermore, the HLC offers optional fee-based tutoring with direct 1:1 support for all students. Tutors partner with students and families, and collaborate Drew’s faculty and HLC staff, to provide strategies and support for content, learning, and study.
