Academic struggles due to a learning difference such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, or attention deficit disorder are frustrating for both students and parents. Fairhill’s mission is to help students “learn how to learn” in spite of their learning differences. By helping students overcome learning obstacles and realize their potential, students gain confidence in their own abilities and achieve successes they never thought possible.
A Fairhill education offers a multi-sensory approach to learning, a small student-to-teacher ratio, and a warm, supportive atmosphere. The experienced staff helps students maximize their strengths and develop strategies and techniques to minimize their weaknesses. While Fairhill places great importance on the basic skills of reading, math, language arts, and study skills, the school also provides enrichment classes such as art, music, drama, communication skills, technology, and athletics. Fairhill prepares students through targeted instruction including literacy and language therapy, executive function development, and a college and career readiness program. Fairhill promotes confidence, mindfulness, and perseverance for lifelong learning.
Fairhill is a private, nonprofit school which has been serving students with learning differences for more than 45 years. Fairhill’s college-preparatory curriculum is designed to help the students develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills necessary for 21st century learners. Fairhill also focuses on developing and supporting the students’ emotional and social development. At Fairhill, students can realize their greatest potential.
Fairhill School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
