Educational Support Services (ESS)

List of 1 items.

  • A program for students grades 2-12 with a diagnosed mild to moderate learning difference.

The type of support each student receives varies by division and individual student needs. ESS faculty work directly with mainstream teachers to ensure that ESS students receive curriculum commensurate with, or the same as, other Heritage Hall students. Individualized/differentiated instruction, accommodation implementation, strong work ethic, student advocacy, and meaningful student-teacher relationships are all key components of the program.

The ESS program is designed for students with average to above-average intelligence, with no significant emotional or behavioral issues that would hinder academic and social success. Since Heritage Hall is a rigorous college preparatory environment, students must be motivated academically. Parental support of teacher recommendations and the program’s goals is vital to the success of each student in the program.

Acceptance Criteria

Acceptance into the ESS program is based on need (current psychoeducational testing is required), program compatibility, availability, and commitment to program requirements.  Due to different program configurations within each division, student placement is reviewed upon entry into Middle School (grade 5) and again when entering Upper School (grade 9).
