  • Providing Resources for Student Success

The Educational Support Services (ESS) program works with parents and classroom teachers to facilitate services needed by students with mild to moderate learning disabilities and academic deficits so they can grow and thrive in the school environment. Heritage participates in the State of Wisconsin's Special Needs Scholarship Program (SNSP), which will cover the tuition and fees associated with Educational Support Services for students who have a current IEP.


A Student Success Plan is established for every participant in Heritage's ESS program. This plan is customized to the needs of each student, providing a combination of interventions and accommodations where appropriate to maximize student success.

Fees for the ESS program are in addition to the cost of tuition, with the exception of services provided via Title 1 or SNSP.
