Learning Support

As part of the application process parents are requested to submit all relevant documentation to the admissions department so that we may determine whether or not we have the the right program to meet that child´s needs. Documents that are required are include Individualized Education Plans and educational and psychological assessments.

Academia Cotopaxi’s Learning Support Department includes a staff of Learning Specialists, Paraprofessionals, Guidance Counselors and a School Psychologist, all of whom are qualified and experienced professionals. They possess academic training and professional experience in the field of Learning Disabilities, Learning Differences, Special Education, Guidance and Counseling, and School Psychology. Each of them is assigned to a specific division – Elementary School (Prek-G5), Middle School (G6-8) and High School (G9-12), where they work closely with the Principal and the classroom teachers within that division.

Our Guidance Counselors are certified mental health professionals with substantial experience in supporting students with emotional, behavioral and academic needs. Our School Psychologist is a well-established professional in our community. Having been trained in the United States, and working at our school for over 20 years, she has extensive experience supporting a wide range of needs across all ages and grades. This team of qualified and skilled professionals provide an incredible resource to our community and are champions of our inclusive programming.
