The Chesapeake Learning Center (CLC) at West Nottingham was founded to provide direct services to students with learning differences in our small boarding school environment. While WNA has a history of providing individualized attention to its students, the CLC recognized the need to provide specialized instruction and support from faculty with a deeper understanding of educating exceptional students.
The CLC program recognizes the strengths in each student and strives to enable them to understand their challenges and employ strategies to succeed in a college preparatory environment. Many students with exceptional profiles have been under-served in their previous placements, and the CLC works with each student to become effective self-advocates and confidently engage in college or university as a WNA graduate.
The CLC program at WNA is proportional to the size of our school -- approximately 10 percent of our students receive CLC services. Our students are selected on their potential to succeed in a college preparatory environment when offered direct daily support and advocacy.
