IEP (Individualized Education Plans):
SS. Philip and James School has many students who have had IEPs written for them by their local public school's special education department.  We strive to accomodate as many needs as possible that any student may have written in an IEP.  Through Northwest Local Schools, we offer speech therapy on campus. We have pull out time with our tutors to help them develop their skills, as well.  Additionally, many of our students with IEPs get more services through Golden Key Akron a third party provider of the Jon Peterson Scholarship.
