St. Peter’s Catholic School has received a matching grant of $15,000 from the Coastal Community Foundation to open a Learning Center of Beaufort County at the school. The center will offer students, at St. Peter’s, the opportunity to receive learning resource services with specialized teachers in such areas as reading and math. Testing of students will also be part of the program to begin in August.
“Having The Learning Center on site allows us to help students who are struggling. We can begin the process of identification and provide services at a much earlier age and give them the opportunity to be successful as they progress through school. We want to thank the Coastal Community Foundation and especially Malcolm Goodridge — founder and benefactor of The Learning Center of Beaufort County, Inc. Fund — for their support in this endeavor,” said St. Peter’s principal, Joseph R. Benning.
