Our De La Salle Learning Center is a unique space designed under the premise that every student has unique learning needs. As such, it rejects a “one-size-fits-all” model and instead offers a variety of options for student success. The goal is to help students assess, identify, and advocate for their individual needs while developing the practical and academic skills that they need to enter college.
It is a welcoming, comfortable, and safe environment for intellectual exploration, and is operated by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. Onsite there are three conference rooms, a number of office spaces, a quiet room, and twenty carousel stations.
All students are invited to use the Learning Center to form study groups, work on homework assignments, and get assistance from tutors.
|Hours (unless otherwise noted):|

Every day our Learning Center Study offers students the opportunity to receive tutoring from professional adult tutors who are trained to work with students of all skill levels and learning styles. This tutoring happens in both individual and group sessions.
We also contract with our National Honor Society students to provide academic support through 30-minute tutoring sessions. NHS students at De La Salle are sophomores, juniors, and seniors with over a 3.5 cumulative GPA who have demonstrated both academic success and strong leadership skills.
Students are able to take advantage of tutoring by either scheduling an appointment in advance, or dropping into the Learning Center after school, Monday through Thursday. (There is no tutoring available after school on Fridays).
Tutoring may also be requested by teachers, parents, counselors, and coordinators.
Spaces in our Learning Center are available before/after school, as well as during lunch, to students who require a quiet, supervised setting to successfully complete school assignments.
In order to streamline testing for our teachers and counselors, the Learning Center also serves as a Testing Center throughout the day for any makeup testing (and testing accommodations) that need to be administered outside of the classroom.
We encourage students and parents to become familiar with the following rules and guidelines for the Learning Center. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Jon Norfolk.
