About The Learning Resource Program
The Learning Resource Program is designed for students who have the ability to achieve academic success, but require individualized support in accessing the rigorous college preparatory curriculum Fenwick High School offers. Students are accepted into our program in various ways. First, some students come to us with an existing IEP, 504, or qualified professional plan that details academic accommodations based off of a specific diagnosis. Second, some students receive a new diagnosis during their time at Fenwick from a private psychologist, psychiatrist, or other qualified medical professional. Third, some students are part of a case study screening completed by our neighboring public high school (Oak Park and River Forest High School). The aforementioned information is gathered and reviewed. Eligibility for services is then determined. Eligible students receive accommodations as part of an Academic Achievement Plan. The Learning Resource Program staff, along with the students’ class counselors, has helped hundreds of students reach their full potential by teaching them new learning strategies as well as lifelong independent, time management, and organizational skills.
