Pike’s Student Support Team (SST) exists to empower students of a variety of learning profiles to grow into more independent, self-actualized, and socially healthy learners. This is achieved through both consultation with other professionals and direct work with students across various tiers of support.
Our team includes:
- Upper & Lower School Counselors
- Upper & Lower School Coordinators of Student Support
- Upper & Lower School Learning Specialists
- Lower School Reading Specialist
- Lower School Literacy & Writing Coach
- Upper School Math Coach
Our Coordinators and Counselors work with the Director of Academics, Division Heads, faculty, staff, and parents/guardians to provide consultation regarding students’ academic, social, and emotional needs. This may include instructional strategies, academic interventions, emotional and behavioral supports, assessment, and increased understanding of student learning profiles. SST faculty also teach reading groups in the Lower School and Study Skills in the Upper School.
Pike offers fee-free, structured “Student Support Sessions” program for individual students in 1:1 and small group settings with a Learning Specialist. Students are referred to the program by their teaching team.
Coordinators and Counselors, serving as case managers, oversee evaluations and appropriate accommodations for students with documented needs.
