Center School nurtures confidence and realizes the potential of children in grades 1-8 who have language-based learning differences. We also offer 9th grade for students that need an additional year before entering high school. A comprehensive academic program is provided for Center School students in first through eighth grade. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students and reflect the best of current research. Students receive explicit instruction in academic, organizational, and study skills to provide them with the strategies they need to become independent and confident learners. In Middle School, an advisory system teaches students how to set goals and celebrate their strengths and interests.
Center Schools curriculum is language-based, recognizing the role that language plays in academic success. Using the Pennsylvania Core Standards as a guideline, full curriculum instruction is offered through a structured, multi-sensory approach based on students needs and designed to address each childs learning needs through small group instruction. Curriculum can be adjusted to be taught at an appropriate pace for a students individual level of learning.
