Student Center

Harborlight's Student Center is designed to teach and promote one-on-one and small group differentiated learning whenever appropriate. The Student Center supports learning difficulties and provides enrichment opportunities for our accelerated learners. Building relationships between students and the curriculum begins with communicating to the students various ways to understand their own learning style while helping the parents and teachers gain insights into strategies. Using a variety of Montessori and non-Montessori approaches, Student Center faculty generate and implement effective plans for student learning and progress monitoring. When necessary, the Student Center will work together with families to understand student needs to identify additional community resources and make referrals.

All Harborlight students, beginning in grade K, will be assessed at minimum twice per academic year. These assessments will be conducted by our Student Center Director. The assessment data informs strategies for learning in the classroom. All strategies will be introduced to support all student learning from implementing an accelerated pace for learning to learning differences and making adequate progress. These services are included in the Harborlight tuition. 

Small group reading instruction and writing workshops are available to all students at an additional cost of $3,000 per academic year. Individual tutorials are available to all students at an additional cost of $4,500 per academic year.

Intensive individual tutorials and strategies for student success are available as well. This fee will be determined based on the student's learning profile and access to the Student Center.
Beth brings more than 25 years of classroom teaching experience to the Student Center. In addition to her Undergraduate Education degree and Montessori Certifications, Beth earned a Masters degree in Reading. She worked unofficially as Harborlight’s reading specialist for the past few years and is excited to bring her expertise to this program.
