In the words of Saint Theodore Guerin, “Love the Children First, then Teach Them”, rest assured, we at Guerin Catholic are committed to your child every step of the way!

Guerin Catholic created the Learning Support Program to provide academic support to students with diagnosed learning differences, a qualified plan from their sending school, or a school counselor recommendation. The goal of the program is to provide resources and extensive individual support for continued development of a student’s skills, to ensure they become independent learners, and grow toward self-advocacy all while achieving their own educational goals. Students, parents, and the Director of Learning Support will meet one-on-one to develop an individual academic plan for each child to ensure growth and success in Guerin Catholic’s college preparatory curriculum.

Please contact our Director of Learning Support, Dawn Street, at (317) 582-0120 ext. 335 or at for more information.
