Student Services

The FVL Student Services Program exists to assist students who are challenged in aspects of academic success.  Two tracks are offered: Special Education and Guided Studies.

The goal of each track is to help these students throughout their high school years while encouraging personal growth in academics. Our teachers will strive to equip them all to be successful learners with the gifts God has given them and to prepare them to be advocates for themselves and for Christ.

Special Education students may qualify for Wisconsin's Special Needs Scholarship Program (SNSP). This state-funded program covers the full tuition cost of eligible families. More information on the SNSP program is under the Paying for High School tab.

Questions? Please contact Mrs. Sara Zuberbier to make an appointment to discuss your student’s needs.

Fox Success Program (Managed by Guidance)

The Fox Success Program assists students who are struggling in one or more classes and who are not already part of the Student Services Program. Students who have a pattern of low grades or a high number of incomplete assignments are candidates for this program.

The process to enter the Fox Success Program is normally initiated by a student’s Guidance Counselor in a meeting with the student. The purpose the meeting is to determine if the program would be a good fit, what challenges might exist, and what goals will be set for the student.

Students in the program are typically assigned to the Media Center during their study period. A supervisor meets with those students on a daily basis to monitor progress.
