The Academic Support Program provides comprehensive academic resources, support, and services for students. The goals are for students to develop increased self-esteem, self-advocacy, and academic success by working with individual students to create a learning profile tailored to their academic strengths and goals. The Academic Support Program partners with students, families, and the school to ensure students are prepared to maximize their academic potential.
Equip is an additional fee service that is provided at Lipscomb Academy. Equip services include, year-round, subject-matter tutoring, reading comprehension strategies, math skills development, memory and learning strategies, assessment, and feedback. Equip also offers group study sessions for midterm and year-end exams, as well as individual and group ACT STEM Preparation. Equip tutoring takes place before, during, and after school and in under some circumstances, in a virtual format. There is a $75 annual registration fee for these services. This fee covers administrative costs, resources, certification, and professional training for our staff. The cost per session of tutoring services, group study sessions, and ACT preparation vary. While not every student will require these fee-based services, every student could benefit from services offered by Equip.
Non-fee based services
Additional services that may be available through the Academic Support Program include referrals for psychoeducational assessment; communication of effective strategies, interventions and/or accommodations; and collaborative meetings between the student, parents, teachers, tutors, Learning Services Coordinator, Student Success Coordinator, Testing Coordinator and Director of Academic Support.
