Academic Resources


Benet Academy is able to support learners who need limited accommodations to be successful in a college preparatory high school.

Child-Find Through Lisle School District 202

Benet Academy partners with Lisle School District 202 to assess students for disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Please contact Mrs. Theresa Wright, the Director of Counseling, at, for further information. 
All requests for learning accommodations will be considered after Benet has received and reviewed the following:
  • A learner’s current (within three years) and complete psycho-educational testing
  • A confidential release signed by the parent allowing Benet to contact the examiner if needed
  • Anecdotal information from a learner’s current teachers regarding the student’s academic performance. For learners seeking admission to Benet as freshmen, a review of the accommodations currently being used at the junior high level will be required. For those transferring to Benet, a review of the accommodations used during the previous high school years will be warranted

Additional Considerations
Please note: The presence of a learning disability does not automatically mean that a student will receive academic accommodations. Benet will carefully review all relevant information to determine if there is a significant discrepancy between measured cognitive ability and academic achievement. This is consistent with the process College Board and ACT use to decide whether students are eligible for accommodations on their exams.
If a determination is made to support learning accommodations, Benet will share these accommodations with a learner’s parents, classroom teachers, and counselor. The accommodations will be reviewed on a yearly basis.
Learners currently using testing accommodations at Benet may be eligible to use accommodations on the college entrance exams taken during their junior and senior years. The ACT and SAT are managed independently by separate companies, and both require a different application process. Please note: approval to use accommodations at Benet does not guarantee approval to use the same accommodations on either the ACT or SAT. Please pay careful attention to procedural information and deadlines as provided.
