Marian Program


The Marian Program at OLPH School was developed to help students with diagnosed language-based learning differences and math difficulties reach their potential and have a positive and successful school experience. Students entering Grades 3-8 who have already had educational and/or neuropsychological testing and have been diagnosed with learning differences may apply to the program.
