Camperdown Academy

  • Our mission is to enable students with average to above average intelligence, who also experience learning difficulties in the areas of reading, organization, language processing, and written expression, to reach their maximum academic potential.
  • Additionally, we will strive to provide information to our families and the community so all may better understand and relate to children and adults with language-based learning disabilities or dyslexia.
  • Camperdown Academy is committed to providing a progressive education for bright dyslexic children in an academic environment where students can maximize their individual ability to achieve.
  • Camperdown is committed to giving each student the tools needed to succeed in life -- tenacity, wisdom, confidence, insight into individual character, a knowledge that we often learn less from success than from failure.
  • Students are taught a process of thoughtful deliberation and intellectual experimentation that will allow them to achieve their highest potential.
