The Confidence to Learn Successfully.


The Maclay School Center for Academic Excellence acts as the central location on campus for all academic support services and professional development.  The Center for Academic Excellence collects data on student achievement, conducts classroom observations, and coordinates all tutorial services, student support, and accommodations on campus.   

For Students

  • We collect data from multiple sources including meeting with teachers and parents, conducting classroom observations and providing informal assessments to help identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses.
  • Based upon this data, we make recommendations to parents and teachers to help individualize the curriculum to best meet the student’s needs.
  • We offer free peer tutoring services for Middle School students after school through the Beta Academic Resource Center (BARC). 
  • We offer free peer tutoring services for Upper School students after school through the Maclay Academic Resource Center (MARC). 
  • We coordinate all tutoring and supplementary education on Maclay’s campus.

For Parents

  • We coordinate with parents and local psychologists to ensure that students who are suspected of having a disability receive a psycho-educational evaluation and we offer financial aid to families for whom the cost of these evaluations is burdensome.
  • We write Accommodation Plans for students who require accommodations to level the playing field between them and their non-disabled peers.
  • We offer targeted academic interventions for students who have been diagnosed with a learning disability or those who have been identified as a student of concern.
