    To facilitate education
The Steward School is composed of students with diverse aptitudes, talents, and learning styles. The Center for the Advancement of Learning (CAL) is committed to providing resources that allow students to explore their strengths and challenges and to utilize that knowledge to become lifelong learners. CAL helps personalize Steward's educational program to students' needs, interests, and learning styles through enrichment and support services. The department conducts student assessments, provides an in-school tutoring program, and serves as a resource for faculty and parents.

CAL provides a variety of programs:

  • Enrichment
  • Support for those in need of academic strengthening
  • The Parent Resource Center
  • Information regarding community resources

With an open-door policy, our CAL liaisons encourage students to utilize our full-range of educational resources. Some of these resources include help with study, organization, and time management skills as well as subject-specific tutoring. The Center for the Advancement of Learning also offers guidance and resources for students and parents regarding emotional concerns, stress, and health and wellness.

  • Tutoring Services

    Students who need additional support can receive one-on-one tutoring during the school day to strengthen concepts taught in the classroom or to remediate deficits in the core areas of reading, writing, math, or a foreign language. Having Steward’s tutors on campus allows for additional ease of communication between the tutors and the teachers. In the Middle and Upper School, tutors have access to lesson plans that assist in guiding the sessions. The cost of tutoring is separate from tuition. For students needing financial assistance, the Robins Tutoring Scholarship Fund can be used to cover the costs. This fund allows students who need tutoring to receive help, regardless of financial limitations.
  • Support and Resources

    There are thousands of apps and websites that parents can choose to find educational and parenting resources. Common Sense Media is a website that reviews websites and mobile apps and can help when choosing age-appropriate and valuable resources.

    Additionally, the following list includes resources that have been helpful to The Center for the Advancement of Learning when working with students, parents, and teachers:
