Friends of Good Counsel Learning Center share their stories!


"What does the Learning Center mean to me? A great deal!"

Towards the end of first grade I started going to the Learning Center for extra help with my studies. While there, Sister Lucille observed something amiss with how I was processing the written word, and suggested I be tested for a potential reading/visual impairment.  It was discovered from this test that both of my eyes were not reading in tandem, rather they were processing the written word in two different ways. Through Sister Lucille we discovered MN Vision Therapy. After retraining my eyes through therapy and continuing with the Learning Center, I was able to get back on track and caught up with my grade level. Because of the incredible caring and teaching of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and the Learning Center, I would not be where I am today, a freshman at Marquette University!

I attended the Center when I was 26 as a non-reader in the 70s. It was a life changing experience for my family and me. I could read menus, go shopping, and read to my boys.

My son made wonderful strides in reading and math and it helped build his self-confidence. I recommend the Center to any parent whose children need help. (Attended in primary and intermediate grades.)

We have utilized the Learning Center at Good Counsel for many years and we could not be more pleased. The inidividualized teaching is provided in a creative way that reinforces and then builds on each child's needs. Participation in this program has increased our children's confidence and academic performance in school. We love the Learning Center and all the kindness that we have received there.
