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.

Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
