Our Religious Education Program includes a class that supports students with special needs. This class meets on Sundays for one hour (10:15-11:15 am) and utilizes a small group instructional format. Other options available for students include a helper to provide 1:1 assistance in the regular REP class based on the needs of the child, or identifying a volunteer to provide instruction to your child outside of the classroom.
For more information, please contact Earl Tropp, Director of Religious Education.
