Learning Partners

What is Learning Partners?

At Louisburg College, we recognize that students with learning differences and ADHD can benefit from specialized instruction, individualized coaching, and specific accommodations as they transition to the academic demands of college. To meet this need, we have developed a unique program that addresses the individual learning needs of these students. Louisburg College's Learning Partners program offers a comprehensive, research-based approach to serving college students that few other colleges in the Southeast offer.

Learning Partners is a fee-based, academic coaching program that provides the foundation of success for students with learning and attention differences. Professional learning specialists assist students in gaining a more refined understanding of their learning needs and strengths. They can also help students develop learning strategies and study methods that will lead to academic and professional success. 

Our mission is to provide students the individualized support they need to develop their learning skills, realize their academic goals, and work toward becoming successful, independent learners. Learning Partners is uniquely structured to help students who learn differently to realize their full potential, to earn an associate's degree in the arts or sciences, and to prepare them for the four-year university experience or a professional career.

Learning Partners provided the structure and guidance to assist my son in forming study habits that adapted to his learning style, not the other way around. This program was the perfect blend of adaptability and advice my son needed to help him become the successful student he is today.
