Mission: The students at Churchill Academy are successful because they are provided with a supportive environment and individualized academic programming which teaches to their strengths, addresses their weaknesses, and encourages compensatory strategies.

About the School: Churchill Academy is a one-of-a-kind school for bright children with unique learning differences. For some this may mean that they can read information, but cannot remember it. For others this means that they understand what they read, but cannot express it. Many are gifted in specific, intellectual, and academic areas, but their potential is overlooked by educators because they aren't able to achieve in mainstream academic environments with traditional methods, materials and techniques. These children learn differently.

Mission: Spring Valley’s mission is to provide excellence in education for students who struggle with dyslexia, AD/HD and other learning differences. Our mission is accomplished by creating a multi-sensory, whole-child approach to education in a small class setting. Our curriculum focuses on research-based remedial methods, study strategies and technology that are proven to enable students to accommodate their differences and demonstrate their maximum potential in our school setting and beyond.

About the School: Spring Valley School utilizes the Orton-Gillingham teaching method which emphasizes a multi-sensory approach to reading, employing the visual, auditory, and tactile systems. Based on over 60 years of research and practice, this unique curriculum is highly individualized and cognitive in approach. The Orton-Gillingham method is anchored in multi-sensory language instruction that stimulates and builds auditory, visual and tactile/kinesthetic pathways to learning. It teaches the structure of language and the tools that improve reading, writing and spelling.
