The Aquinas Program is a Christ-centered, quality academic education program within a Catholic school environment for young adults with learning disabilities. Students are encouraged to work to their full potential and to be respectful of others. Emphasis is placed on helping students gain self-confidence and develop a positive attitude toward academic achievement.

Students are scheduled into regular high school classes, with the exception of  one period per day, at which time they are scheduled into the resource room for instruction in organization and study skills.  The teacher-to-student ratio is approximately 1:5. Students have a full academic schedule; modifications and adaptations are developed through consultation between the Aquinas Program teacher and subject area teachers. These adaptations are specified on the students' Individual Instruction Plans (IP's).

For further information on the Aquinas Program, please speak with Miss Amy Brennan at 610-868-1431, extension 192 or abrennan@ndcrusaders.org.
