Ryken Studies is named for the founder of the Xaverian Brothers and is a college preparatory program designed for highly motivated students who have been diagnosed with mild learning differences. We prepare students for success in college and help them become autonomous learners by developing and reinforcing compensation strategies for each student’s learning difference(s).

This program assists students in their core courses using varied teaching styles and strategies that focus on skill development in smaller group settings. By junior year, most students move into the College Prep, Honors, AP, and IB Programs as they prepare for college.
