Mentoring

Connect struggling learners with experienced positive adult role models to provide guidance and build confidence. Our trained mentors support more than just a student’s academic needs. We match students with mentors who are compatible with a student’s cultural, religious and ethnic needs, ensuring a deeper relationship with the mentor and better outcomes for the student.

Mentoring relationships are a win-win for both your school and your students. Through mentoring, students:

  • Improve overall academic performance

  • Feel supported in their endeavors

  • Aspire toward higher levels of achievement

  • Have a resource to direct questions toward

  • Improve school attendance

  • Have stronger and healthier relationships

  • Develop self-confidence and higher self-esteem

Physical and Occupational Therapy

Catapult Learning’s Physical and Occupational Therapy programs help students fully and functionally participate within a school environment by meeting the needs identified in a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Individualized Service Plan (ISP). Our therapists are credentialed to meet or exceed local requirements.

  • Services are customized to meet your school needs, preferences, and funding resources.

  • We collaborate and communicate with parents and guardians, classroom teachers, and school administrators to ensure students receive the support they need to succeed.

  • Our expert therapists can provide an analysis of the classroom environment, highlighting physical obstacles a student faces and suggest simple solutions.

Learning improves when students are cared for and healthy

Attendance Rate Increases

Absentee rates decrease when nurses administer daily treatments and first-aid.

Time in Class Increases

Nursing services help keep students in class by providing services at school locations. Students spend less time traveling off campus to receive medical attention.

Teachers Can Focus on Teaching

Studies show that without a school nurse on staff, teachers could spend more than 25 minutes a day on health-related matters. With a school nurse on staff, time decreases to fewer than 10 minutes.
