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.
