Seattle’s Jesuit College Prep School Since 1891

Regina Melonson Learning Resource Center

 

Mission

As a Catholic, Jesuit, institution, Seattle Preparatory School is deeply committed to creating a supportive, inclusive academic environment. The LRC seeks to ensure that our students have full and equal access to our educational and co-curricular programs. We do so by providing services and accommodations for neurodiverse learners.

Program Philosophy

The LRC is committed to providing those services that allow students to oversee their own learning. Therefore services are provided only to those students that acknowledge the need for support and actively seek it out. The services provided are those that can be implemented within the existing schedule and curriculum of Seattle Prep.

Meet the director

Regina Melonson, M.Ed., Ed.S., NCSP

Hired at Seattle Prep as a science teacher, I founded the Learning Resource Center program in 1994 as a way to provide additional academic support to students with diagnosed learning difficulties. I hold a BA in Biochemistry from the University of Washington, a M.Ed., in Curriculum and Instruction with an endorsement in Special Education, and an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology both from Seattle University. As Director and School Psychologist I oversee the work of the LRC and specialize in the assessment of learning disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD), educational consulting, and academic intervention planning and implementation for both school and home settings. The LRC staff utilizes a strengths-based, compassionate and positive approach to find clarity and bring effective solutions to aid students and their families.
