School Notes

  • Our students are intelligent young people who have found it difficult to thrive in a traditional schooling environment. Many of our students struggle with complex learning situations stemming from language/sensory processing differences or social skill challenges. They need a small class size, more individualized attention, and accommodations that a smaller environment provides.
  • Populations served generally include, but are not limited to, students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, high-functioning autism, school anxiety, various learning disabilities, and those students with neuro-typical traits whose learning styles benefit from a smaller classroom environment.
  • Some of our students simply have a desire to learn in a more personal environment with a progressive curriculum that is student-centered, vigorous and yet not driven by state testing requirements.
