Special Learning Programs: Educating All God's Children
Matthew Morgan, MAP, Options, PACE, Learning Support

Educating all of God's children is our mission. MACS has four special learning programs at five schools for students with special learning needs and diagnosed learning disabilities. Learning support is also available to all students at all nine schools.

Our Matthew Morgan Program is specifically tailored to meet the needs of students with Down Syndrome. This program is offered at St. Patrick Catholic School and Holy Trinity Catholic Middle School.

The Modified Academic Program (MAP) is a self-contained program for students who require a modified academic curriculum in their core courses. Students receive core instruction based on their needs in a variety of settings: one-on-one, small group, and/or regular class instruction with a one-on-one teacher. This program is offered at ​St. Ann Catholic School and Holy Trinity Catholic Middle School.

The Options Program creates an elementary - 12th grade path for students in the MAP and Matthew Morgan programs to continue to flourish in our Catholic schools and beyond.  This program provides a curriculum specifically developed to bring these two programs together and creates a “certificate” path that will allow these students to explore options on college/university campuses beyond high school. This program is offered at Charlotte Catholic High School

The Providing an Appropriate Catholic Education Program (PACE) is similar to MAP but is designed to fully re-enter students diagnosed with a reading (dyslexia) and/or writing (dysgraphia) disability back into the general education classroom. This program is offered at Our Lady of the Assumption ​Catholic School.

Learning support is offered at all nine schools for students who may need assistance with academics.

"My son has grown in self-confidence and maturity. He feels secure in who he is. It has been such a blessing to our family for both my sons to attend together and have both of their educational levels to be met. We just feel so fortunate to have this opportunity available to us."
