Chatham Academy

  • "Chatham Academy believes that a student’s self-concept, attitude and past experiences affect the daily learning process of that child.
  • Teaching academic skills, appropriate daily behavior and social skills are an important part of the curriculum.
  • To teach these skills, daily instruction is on-going and constant.
  • The constant review of key ideas and skills are built into the curriculum so that the information is transferred from short to long-term memory at each student's individual level.
  • Chatham Academy has designed the classrooms, teaching techniques and curriculum to allow each child to experience academic and social success.
  • Students are grouped in classes by age and skill level, which allows the teacher to provide direct instruction throughout the class time rather than strictly independent work.
  • A variety of modalities and teaching methods are used in order to sustain a high level of attention and to provide for academic success.
  • Each class is structured so that students have clear expectations and are aware of consequences for inappropriate actions.
  • Basic class rules are the same throughout the school to provide consistency.
  • There are slight variations in consequences based on student age and individual needs.
  • Our goals are to teach each student the academic skills appropriate for their level, to accept responsibility for their actions and their learning, and to advocate responsibly for themselves.
  • Chatham Academy educates students in grades 1-12 with learning differences.
  • Through the use of specialized teaching techniques, small classes and consistent expectations we help students achieve at their potential level.".
