Mission: Our Mission at Churchill Center & School is to give high potential children with learning disabilities the finest, individualized, remedial education and the support they need to achieve and return to a traditional classroom and... To foster greater understanding and support for all people with learning disabilities by training other educators, supporting our families and enlightening the community.

About the School: Each year, thousands of American children of average and above-average intelligence fail to learn to read, write and spell. Many of these high-potential children are diagnosed as having a specific learning disability. This disability occurs despite conventional instruction, a culturally adequate home, proper motivation, and normal hearing and vision. We believe these bright children can be academically successful with the proper educational help. A learning disability needn’t be an obstacle to success. Our alumni pursue successful careers as attorneys, mechanical engineers, teachers (including Churchill teachers), entrepreneurs, professional photographers, professional dancers, actors and more.
