Student Center

Harborlight's Student Center is designed to teach one-on-one and small-group differentiated learning whenever appropriate. The Student Center provides support for students needing instructional interventions and enrichment opportunities for our accelerated learners.  

Using a variety of Montessori and non-Montessori approaches, Student Center faculty generate and implement effective learning plans and progress monitoring. When necessary, the Student Center will work together with families to understand student needs and identify additional community resources and/or make referrals for additional evaluation or therapy.

All Harborlight students, beginning in grade PK-4, will be assessed periodically during the academic year (typically once each trimester). These assessments will be conducted by the learning specialist. This assessment data informs strategies for classroom instruction. These services are included in the Harborlight tuition. 

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.
