Academic Support

The Valor Program provides a supportive environment where students diagnosed with a learning disability can receive extra academic, motivational, or professional assistance. The goal of the program is to empower students to embrace their abilities and acquire an individualized method of learning to maximize their strengths and achieve success.

Eligibility and admission decisions for entrance into the Valor Program are based on a recent complete evaluation that documents the student’s learning difference from an approved professional psycho-educational evaluation or by recommendation by program director, teacher, or parent. If the student does not have a diagnosed learning disability, a meeting between director, administrator, and parent may be required to gain acceptance into the program and alignment on educational goals. The student’s accommodation plan will then be determined with the recommendations from the full evaluation as approved by Paragon Prep. All documentation will be managed and maintained confidentially on file by the Valor Program Director. Paragon Prep will not share any of this documentation with any outside source.

Students do not have to continue with the Valor Program if they exhibit the ability to have success independently. While we are experienced and equipped to offer proper accommodations for a variety of learning differences, we may be unable to support all possible behavior modification plans.

More About Valor

  • Students attend 3–5 days a week.
    Students are given organizational and planning strategies, receive academic support through modeling proper and effective study habits, and also receive emotional or social support.
  • Each student is assessed throughout the trimester, and progress is shared with parents during parent/teacher conferences at the end of each trimester and school year.
  • Students with a diagnosed learning disability that requires specialized support (e.g., dyslexia or dysgraphia) are required to see an outside educational therapist and adhere to the recommendations of the program set forth by said educational therapist.
  • Some students may also be required to meet with an outside tutor in a one-on-one setting after school to receive additional support in a specific subject (e.g., a math or writing tutor).
