Mission: The de Pual School teaches students with learning differences how to learn, how to be independent and how to be successful.

About the School: The de Paul School is a collaborative of educators, leaders and staff who believe that there is no other way to dignify a child more than to help him or her understand what they are truly capable of. We want each child to know and believe they are capable of scholastic and life success: as long as they work hard, set goals and aspire to reach them. The de Paul School gives our students the tools and strategies to achieve all they aspire to do. Every child learns differently, and at The de Paul School, we teach for that.

Mission: Summit Academy of Greater Louisville provides a nurturing educational environment for children with learning differences, in which each child’s academic achievement comes to reflect his or her learning potential.

About the School: Too often, children are asked to adapt to school policies, procedures, and programs rather than the school making adjustments to meet the unique needs of the learners. As a result, many families and students find themselves frustrated by academic programming that does not work for them. Summit Academy of Greater Louisville is an independent, non-profit school that helps families and students stop feeling frustrated. Our students are pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, and they love going to school here. Summit provides a place where each child’s learning challenges are understood and met using a whole child approach; a place where we celebrate and develop a child’s strengths, as well as addressing their area of difficulty. It’s a safe place where a child is treated and educated as an individual – in an atmosphere of caring and respect that allows our students to succeed.
