School Notes

  • The Churchill School and Center, a K-12 coeducational college preparatory day school, is dedicated to working collaboratively with students, educators, and families to help children with language based learning disabilities realize their full potential. 
  • Students with language-based learning disabilities need an intensive, yet rigorous program to meet their specific needs and drive them to succeed. As a college preparatory program, we work to ensure students are ready to meet the demands of college, if that is indeed their path. With that said, we also recognize that college, like most things in life, is not a one-size-fits-all model.
  • Our goal is to address students` academic and social needs while at the same time challenging them to identify and capitalize on their strengths and talents. For example, our students also participate in the visual and performing arts across the divisions. The annual student art show is always a highlight of the year. Performance opportunities include full-scale musical and dramatic productions in the middle and high schools, choral instruction and performances in all divisions, instrumental performing groups and individual instrumental lessons.  At the high school level too, we offer electives and an Honors program to help students discover their passions and explore topics in depth. Across all divisions, our science program provides state-of-the-art laboratories and an enhanced curriculum.
