Center School

Center School is an independent school with a history of successfully serving students with learning disabilities in grades 1-8 since 1989. Center School's mission is to provide children who learn differently with a personalized education to realize their potential and reshape how they view themselves and their future.


Center School's philosophy is based on the belief that every student is capable of academic, social, and emotional growth. Center School is dedicated to designing instructional programs that foster each child's optimal development through small group instruction.


All students at Center School are provided with the individualized instruction necessary to address their challenges. Center School provides a flexible, student-centered, and standards-based curriculum. Highly qualified faculty provide students with the strategies and tools they need to address their learning challenges, take risks, and be successful in a purposefully small and nurturing environment.


Center School educates students who have language-based learning differences that include:
• Dyslexia
• Dysgraphia
• Dyscalculia
• Executive Function Disorder
• Visual and Auditory Processing Disorder


Learning disabilities are addressed and supported through specialized programs in academic and social-emotional areas. A multi-modal approach is used throughout the day in all subjects. Center School students achieve success because their challenges are appropriately addressed, and their strengths are cultivated and celebrated. This results in increased achievement and a sense of pride and self-worth.

    You make miracles happen. J learned to read in 3 months, something his previous school couldn’t achieve in 3 years. He is confident again and loves coming to school. Thank you, you have made such a huge difference in our family’s lives.

    We are so thankful we found Center School, and that you have become a part of our lives. I will never forget the first time walking through the front door on my tour and knowing in my heart, that this is where my son is meant to be. We are beyond grateful for everything you do and for the success our son has achieved.
