Resurrection School, Cherry Hill, is offering a new Resource Center program to serve the needs of students with specific learning disabilities.

The program is staffed with two full-time teachers and four instructional aides.

Accommodating the individual learning needs of the students is supported by flexible scheduling. Students are integrated into the regular classrooms when possible with the support of the resource teachers and aides. Individual and small group instruction in the resource rooms is also provided as needed.

“Some of our Catholic schools may have had to turn a student away because their school does not have the resources to accommodate that student’s different learning needs. This new Resource Center program may be the answer for those families who want their children with special needs to remain in Catholic school,” said Alli Smith, advancement director.

Families who have children with specific learning disabilities that would benefit from this supportive learning environment may call the school office to talk with Alli Smith, advancement director, or Camille Forrest, principal, 856-667-3034.
