The Learning Centers

Cape Cod Academy is equipped with a dedicated Learning Center for grades 5-12, in addition to a dedicated Learning Center for lower school students. The Learning Centers offer students a place to obtain assistance with executive functioning, content area tutoring, small group or collaborative work, and enrichment opportunities. They also provide a quiet space for learning or testing, and a place for students to take a break from the classroom if necessary.

If additional tutoring is needed beyond the Learning Center, one of our Learning Specialists - Mary Gail Wareham (Lower School) and Amy Powers (Middle and Upper School) - can provide a referral to one of our on-site tutoring services. Tutoring can be arranged during the school day if the tutor is available during a student’s study hall or other open period. If not, tutoring can still take place on site after school. Please contact the Learning Specialists with questions or concerns related to learning differences, accommodations, services, enrichment, testing, and/or tutoring needs.
