Holmstead students between the ages of 13 and 18 possess high intellectual potential but have been unable to achieve successfully in traditional school settings.
The Holmstead School provides an educational and therapeutic milieu, which emphasizes innovative and flexible education for bright adolescents who need to be challenged in order to change their motivation and performance.
Students at Holmstead who are finding both academic success and behavioral growth are encouraged to remain in the program through their senior year.

I wholeheartedly endorse this school. After a previous year of school refusal and crisis, my daughter has regained her sense of self, safety, and groundedness while at Holmstead. Her grades have improved and she`s now back on the high honor roll. She willingly gets up on her own every day to go to school. She loves the Holmstead tribe! And they don`t baby these kids...but give them the appropriate academic and therapuetic supports. They work with you to get the individualized plan your kid needs to succeed. A+!!!
Endorse Holmstead School. Endorsements should be a few sentences in length. Please include any comments on:
- Quality of academic programs, teachers, and facilities
- Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities
- Academic or athletic awards
With so much uncertainty in the world today and a pandemic further confounding our lives, it's reasonable for parents to want to protect their children whenever and wherever possible? But overprotecting or bubble-wrapping? Well, that's another matter.
Get Your Act Together!
We take a look at the other college admissions test and offer some resources for test preparation.
Why Small Class Sizes Work
You want your child to receive plenty of individual attention. That's one of the reasons most parents send their children to private school.
