Woodhouse Academy is an academic, therapeutic private day school designed to meet the needs of adolescents (Grades 6 – 12) with average to above average intelligence who are challenged by learning difficulties. They are youngsters who have often experienced failure and difficulties in other school settings resulting in performance levels not commensurate with their abilities.
The Woodhouse program is designed for students who have identified internalizing psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, school phobia, school refusal, school anxiety, PDD, Aspergers, PTSD, OCD. Our students often struggle with executive functioning skills, social skills, low self-esteem and learning differences. These challenges typically interfere with the students’ academic success. Woodhouse Academy provides students with a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, community based, predictable and structured. The program focuses on providing each student with a solid educational experience while developing the necessary social skills they require, while addressing each student’s IEP.
The program is non-punitive and uses collaborative problem solving as a means of addressing all school and social issues that arise. By employing small class sizes each student receives individualized and personalized attention. The program is not designed for children who are overly aggressive, violent, or sexually inappropriate.
The Woodhouse program focuses on addressing: executive functioning skills, academic competence, social communication, social skills, problem solving skills and emotional growth.
