Hill Learning Center offers a unique half-day program to students in grades 1-12 that is designed to provide highly differentiated instruction to students who have specific learning differences or attention deficit disorders. In 2019-20, 176 students from 69 different public and independent schools, as well as 19 home schools, spent a portion of their day at Hill. This dual enrollment affords students the opportunity to receive necessary remediation in a smaller school setting, and apply the skills learned at Hill in other educational settings.Hill strives to assist each individual in realizing his or her potential by developing strengths, remediating weaknesses, and experiencing success. With a student-teacher ratio of 4:1, the relationship between the teacher and student encourages participation and a willingness to attempt difficult skills. The positive, success-oriented nature of the program facilitates learning, as well as improvement of self-concept and motivation. There is an explicit focus on building age-appropriate executive function skills, and a peer advisory program strengthens peer relationships and the platform for practicing self-advocacy skills. An experienced school counselor spends time with each student and provides emotional, behavioral, and social support.
