Teacher with students in the classroom

Rankin Academic Support

 The Rankin Academic Support Program is a college preparatory course of studies for students who require support with Resurrection’s rigorous college preparatory curriculum. The program, named in honor of former Resurrection educator Sr. Joyce Rankin, C.R., provides academic guidance in a small group setting so that students in the Rankin Academic Support Program can master the same classroom curriculum, in the same classroom setting, as their peers.

Students placed in the program have a class period which offers learning strategies, skills reinforcement and individual assistance from qualified resource teachers who collaborate with students’ classroom teachers. This class is built into their schedule as opposed to taking students out of their classes. Students are taught life-long learning skills which will enable them to set and achieve their academic goals now and in the future. A transitional component is also in place for students who are ready to move on from supported learning when they are ready.

Students may be afforded moderate accommodations/modifications in the form of a Resurrection Accommodation Plan if appropriate documentation is provided as outlined in the Accommodation Plan Criteria.
