The Arlington Catholic Achievement Center will strive to empower students by providing the skills, resources and structure for them to achieve academic success.
Guided by a learning specialist and using individualized and small group work, we will focus on study skills and executive functioning allowing students to become more effective and efficient learners. We will focus on working collaboratively with students to develop strategies for learning, studying and test-taking. Additionally, at this center we will offer a range of meaningful enrichment programs and workshops to engage and benefit all students.
