Benefits of placing students at St. Stephen's Lutheran

Academies in Sharon and Utica

---  Each school implements a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for students in need of placement outside of traditional public school.

---  Class sizes are small allowing for individualized attention, interventions, and differentiated instruction.

---  Classes maintain a low student to teacher ration with a PA Certified Special Education Teacher and a specially trained Paraeducator staffed in each room

---  Academics and data driven instructional decisions are at the epicenter of the St. Stephen's program.  We carefully design and implement curriculum, instruction, assessments, and technology to provide the most appropriate education for all learners.

---  All staff members are trained to implement behavioral strategies and interventions including Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies (PBIS), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), and the Sanctuary Model.

---  Staff members collect and monitor data to drive all instructional and behavioral decisions and interventions.
