Bishop Stang High School Launches Learning Differences Program
Dartmouth, MA - April 29, 2019
Bishop Stang High School has announced the launch of a Learning Differences Program, offering students with special education needs the opportunity to experience the school’s tradition of excellence in Catholic, college-preparatory education. Through a generous grant from the SEAL (Specialized Education For All Learners) Foundation, the program will provide the necessary resources to help Bishop Stang students reach their full potential.
President/Principal, Peter Shaughnessy noted: “We are tremendously excited to offer this program to students with learning differences and their families. The development of this opportunity is rooted in our mission to be a diverse and inclusive community that serves all of God’s children. Through the generosity of the SEAL Foundation, and with the support of our diocesan Catholic Schools Office and Bishop da Cunha, we now have the resources to support students with learning differences so that they might thrive and flourish.”
SEAL Founder and President, Kerry Peroni also commented on this new partnership: “The goal of SEAL will be to provide schools with affordable resources, support for children who have identified learning differences and the hiring of personnel to teach them. In the spirit of the Catholic Church’s mission to love and accept all, SEAL will bring in and utilize services for children with learning differences.”
Katherine Gaudet, formerly of Friends Academy as the Assistant Head of School and the founder of the Sally Borden Program enthused, “I am thrilled to have been appointed SEAL’s Executive Director to lead Bishop Stang High School in this inspiring endeavor. SEAL will work together with the entire community to shape a Learning Differences Program that engages its students, faculty and the greater community in understanding learning differences so that the school community embraces this educational approach.”
