The mission of the Learning Enrichment Center (LEC) is to support all St. Thomas students in their efforts to grow as independent, thoughtful, and responsible learners so that every student reaches his potential. Free to all students and open throughout the school day as well as before and after school, the LEC includes an executive functioning program, a Writing Lab, a Math Lab, a Language Lab, and a Student-Athlete Academic Mentor, all devoted to reinforcing the work of our faculty and counselors.
