Brother Kevin Program
The Brother Kevin Program responds to the individual needs of 9th grade students whose personal learning styles and academic profiles indicate they will benefit from additional support for college preparatory classes. The program is designed for students who have ability - but need a stronger foundation in study skills and learning strategies.
Participants in the Brother Kevin Program have schedules which include a double English class. Students also have access to a full-time learning specialist who provides organizational support and consults with the student's teaching team.
The 10th grade Brother Kevin Program continues the foundational work that started in Grade 9. Students work with their learning specialist as a team each cycle to review organizational skills, discuss classes and ensure that everything is order for students so they can achieve their best. Additionally, the learning specialist is available each day before school, during the school day and after school to work on any project-based learning, test preparation and challenging homework assignment.
The Brother Kevin Program accommodates a limited number of students each year. Placement is recommended by Malden Catholic administration and the learning specialist, based on a review of student transcripts, standardized test scores and academic profile.
