The Learning Support Program provides direct support to cadets in reaching their full academic potential by understanding and honoring their strengths while recognizing that they may also need the support and guidance to find true success in a rigorous academic environment. The support provided by the learning specialist is meant to meet students where they are and guide and support them into their development as an independent learner ready for the rigor and expectations of colleges and universities. 

Students who have been assessed with deficits in executive functioning skills or have been diagnosed with ADHD. A student does not need to have an official diagnosis or testing documentation to be enrolled in the program. Many families recognize the need for such a program for their child based on their previous experiences with difficulty in educational and academic settings. Students who simply want to ensure that they are strong in executive functioning skills or feel they need general academic support beyond what R-MA already offers, may also enroll in the program.
