A partnership of St. Francis School and the Langsford Learning Acceleration Centers, The Learning Center began in 2012 on the Goshen Campus and expanded to the Downtown Campus in 2014. The WHAS Crusade for Children supports The Learning Center.
Langsford was co-founded by SFS Goshen alumnus Stephen McCrocklin G‘80, and has at its core a skill set in reading and learning that is unmatched in this region. This partnership allows St. Francis to offer services to its students unlike anything offered at any other school in town. Langsford’s other co-founder, Claudia McCrocklin, serves as the Director of The Learning Center at St. Francis School. Claudia’s role is to assess the needs of any students with learning difference profiles and recommend, in conjunction with The Learning Center Team on each campus (Head of School, Campus Head/Lower School Dean, Counselor), what services might be used to address a need. Parents will then determine what, if any, services they would like to use. The Director of The Learning Center and The Learning Center staff then monitor each student’s progress, communicate that progress to the The Learning Center team and parents, and work with each student’s teachers to ensure seamless integration of The Learning Center work into the classroom.
