Seattleā€™s Jesuit College Prep School Since 1891

Regina & Wayne Melonson Learning Resource Center Endowment

The LRC is a critical component of Prep’s academic program. Our mission is to help equalize the academic playing field for students who need support due to temporary or longstanding conditions that impact their ability to learn. Our reward is their success."

—Regina Melonson

each person is sacred

And everyone who enters the newly named Regina Melonson Learning Resource Center knows this to be true. Tucked away in McDonnell Hall, this light-filled room radiates love.

As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Seattle Prep is committed to creating a supportive, inclusive academic environment for all students. The LRC serves students:

  • with diagnosed learning differences
  • on concussion protocol
  • dealing with temporary and long-term mental health challenges
  • returning from long-term absences due to personal or family circumstances

Services are delivered by a highly-qualified and compassionate team with support from peer note-takers and Honor Society tutors who want their classmates to succeed. Founded in 1994-95 by director Regina Melonson, the LRC served 12 intrepid students in its inaugural year and has grown to serve almost 25% of the student body. Learn more here.

The Learning Resource Center space was renamed in honor of Regina's vocation and service to Prep at the 2018 SPREE Auction.

The program benefits from the Regina & Wayne Melonson Learning Resource Center Endowment. Donations provide financial support for crucial facility enhancements, diagnostic tests and tutoring support.
