The Learning Center was created to meet the study needs of Fenwick students. The center provides study skills instruction, writing and reading support, and school test preparation. Students will receive study skills and writing and reading review so they can achieve academically. The Center assists students with learning style differences so they can reach their academic goals.
Students are referred to the Learning Center through their Guidance Counselors.

The student will work in the center as long as skill building and academic support are needed.
