Mission & Purpose
The High Marks Program serves as an integral part of the educational mission of the Catholic Diocese of Lexington and Lexington Catholic High School to support academic success. High Marks is designed to assist all students who exhibit the potential to complete a college preparatory curriculum as outlined in the graduation requirements for Lexington Catholic High School.
The High Marks Center strives to meet the diverse learning needs of typical learners, as well as those with learning differences through enriched and individualized academic support. All students utilizing The High Marks Program will be enrolled in typical graduation requirements.
Learning with the High Marks Program
The High Marks Program provides support for students with learning differences and disabilities such as ADHD, Dyslexia, and other conditions which can impact learning. Our goal is to have students graduate with an understanding of their own learning needs and the self-advocacy skills needed to enter a post-secondary education with confidence.
The High Marks Center also serves as a space for small group instruction and accommodation for qualified students. Teachers assist students with establishing positive, beneficial peer and faculty mentoring relationships in subject specific areas as well as providing instruction in study skills and self-advocacy.
This is a free, in-school tutoring option available to all students during their flex periods. The tutoring rooms are staffed by faculty members from a variety of disciplines.
Students may voluntarily attend or may be referred to tutoring by a parent, teacher or guidance counselor. The High Marks tutoring program benefits hundreds of students across the entire spectrum of academic abilities.
The High Marks Center is staffed with faculty members after school until 5:00 pm Monday-Thursday. This is an excellent option, available to all students, for completing homework in a group or individual setting, with the advantage of teacher assistance.
