Instructional Support Program (ISP)

The Instructional Support Program (ISP) teaches students who they are as learners and how to discover their unique path to academic success. Rather than modifying lesson plans, we accommodate different learning styles to maintain College Prep curriculum for our ISP students.

The Instructional Support Program (ISP) teaches students who they are as learners and how to discover their unique path to academic success. Rather than modifying lesson plans, we accommodate different learning styles to maintain College Prep curriculum for our ISP students.

Through the teaching of metacognitive strategies and executive functioning skills, students learn about their individual learning styles and develop a growth mindset and learning strategies that will help them to achieve success in school. The ISP program works in conjunction and support of the school’s college preparatory academic program and is staffed by Besant Hill teachers. There are three levels to the ISP program designed to decrease in support as students gain and demonstrate mastery of learning strategies. Students will receive instruction in organization, time management, self-advocacy, and academic subject area assistance, as well as access to and instruction for assistive technology. ISP students leave the program with positive habits of learning and are prepared to enter the competitive learning environment of college and beyond.

Farrah Khan

Director of Instructional Support

“Students have agency in their learning experiences when they understand how they learn and why. Teaching to the individual helps students identify and build the skills they need to enhance their knowledge, which keeps them engaged and excited about learning. I love being able to witness and support their growth.”
