Learning Support

The Learning Center

Many extraordinary things happen each day at Cape Cod Academy.  Our students are always encouraged to stretch and grow.  Part of stretching and growing involves facing new challenges and learning how to succeed.  One wonderful thing about our community is that we all are here to help with transitions, inspire moments of discovery, encourage personal growth and share in the joy of each individual’s journey.
CCA’s Learning Center is an open and welcoming environment where all students who wish to enrich or improve their academic skills can learn helpful strategies and receive supportive coaching.  The Learning Support Specialist helps students understand their individual learning needs and helps them equip themselves with proven and practical strategies.  This work complements the support provided in the classroom by our proactively engaged teachers and advisors.

Some students come to the Learning Center in order to become and remain independent learners; others come to get help with a short term hurdle.  The center helps build the learning community at CCA where every student is encouraged to work to their academic potential.

For additional and specialized individual support, you can speak with Amy Powers, the Middle and Upper School Learning Specialist (apowers@capecodacademy.org) to learn about CCA's specialized learning support programs. Tutors are available on campus to provide private tutoring during or after school at a mutually agreed upon time.

Ungerman Library

Cape Cod Academy's Ungerman Library supports the academic and intellectual culture of the middle and upper schools. The library maintains resources and provides programs and services to support the learning environment of the school. The library seeks to ensure that the students of Cape Cod Academy develop an appreciation of literature, recognize the value of ideas, and are successful and responsible users of information.

For library services and resources, you can speak with Debra Hobday, Librarian and Media Specialist (dhobday@capecodacademy.org).
