Learning Support

Student Support Services at BB&N promotes the holistic growth and success of every student.

Specialists in learning support, counselors, and nurses work together on both campus specific and cross-campus teams, in collaboration with faculty, staff and administrators, to offer a range of support to meet our students’ diverse needs. Through collaborative partnerships, we empower students to overcome challenges, embrace their unique abilities, and become resilient, lifelong learners.

Supporting Students on the Journey to Academic Success

For students who need additional support in school, from grades B-12, our experienced specialists collaborate closely with students, teachers, and families to understand individual learning styles, strengths, and areas of growth. We prioritize inclusivity and equity, striving to support each student’s journey at BB&N. Some student supports are able to be provided at school while others might require outside interventions (e.g., tutoring). Specialists work closely with families who engage in outside support to support communication with the student’s school team. BB&N offers a peer tutor program in the Upper School, connecting students who offer subject-specific support and study strategies to their peers. Through collaboration and expertise, peer tutors empower fellow students to overcome challenges and achieve academic success.


A student’s homeroom teacher and/or advisor is always the best first contact when you are concerned about your child. The campus learning specialists and counselors are also available. All of these faculty/staff work in teams, so it is most important to reach out and let us know your concerns – we will connect you with the right person for next steps.

The Learning Specialists on all three campuses are the starting place for sharing information or starting conversations about outside testing and/or accommodation plans. Once you’ve reached out to the learning specialist, they will plan a time to connect with you to learn more about your student and to share the process with you for applying for accommodations at BB&N.

Any questions regarding SAT/ACT/AP accommodations should be directed to the school’s SSD coordinator Emma O’Loughlin at
