New Life Christian School is privileged to be a member of the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD). NILD gives NLCS the ability to meet the needs of students who struggle with learning through our Discovery Program. Educational therapists generally work with students who have an average or higher intelligence quotient, but have difficulty maintaining average grades within the normal classroom setting. See Discovery Program Brochure for more information.
Responding directly to this challenge, the therapists at New Life are licensed and professionally certified educational therapists. This level of certification is not common to most Discovery Programs, and New Life recognizes the value this achievement brings to its Discovery students.
Students who struggle with learning are usually identified by their classroom teachers or referred by their parents for further analysis through testing to find out why the student is struggling in their learning process. Several steps are followed within the guidelines of our referral program. These steps are:
The costs for this program are in addition to the normal tuition of NLCS.
