Regina Melonson Learning Resource Center

This year the Learning Resource Center is supporting approximately 15% of Prep students.

Program Philosophy

The LRC is committed to providing 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.

LRC Team

Venicia Allen-Johnson, Jon Humphrie ’09 and Director Anne Balicki


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.

The primary goal of the LRC is to collaborate with students at the center of their learning, teaming with faculty and parents or guardians, and ensuring that every student can achieve Seattle Prep's mission of Ignatian ideals.Anne Balicki

Prep gave me the foundation to advocate for myself and that has made all the difference. Agnes Davila ’21
