Andre Program

“It will do little good to use the same procedures in working with every student.  The teacher would be like a doctor who always gave the same remedy for every illness.  This in itself should be enough to point out the importance of beginning the year by studying your students”  (excerpt from Blessed Father Basil Moreau's letter, 1862).

At Saint Edmond’s Academy, we believe in educating the whole child.  We recognize that every student deserves the opportunity to learn in a way that sparks and fuels what is inside them. In other words, every student has their own uniqueness, and it is our job as educators to help them discover and develop their potential.

The Andre Program Team consists of the Principal, Andre coordinators, learning specialists, and faculty. The Andre Program helps students with diagnosed  mild learning differences in grades 4 through 8. Such diagnoses can include attention deficits, auditory processing, reading and math disabilities. The Andre Program uses a combination of in-school assessments, work samples, teacher and Andre staff observations, educational testing and/or educational plans from previous schools, and parent input to identify students for the Andre Program. The same criteria are used to develop an Action Plan. The Action Plan puts into place the accommodations and recommendations that help the student to succeed. Action Plans are unique to each student and designed to meet his individual needs, as well as to provide consistent communication to all who work with the student. 

The level of support a student receives through the Andre Program varies depending upon his needs. The Andre Program offers support through small group meetings, enrichment programs, and after-school help. The Andre Staff also provides additional support to all students with a regular presence in the classroom setting. 

Whether your son is in the program or not, it is important to remember that all students benefit from the differentiated instruction that we provide at Saint Edmond's Academy. Meeting the needs of our students is paramount. In his letter, Blessed Father Moreau went on to discuss the importance of educating the whole child and taught his teachers that "the mind would not be taught at the expense of the heart." This is what we do.
