This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.

Awards or Certifications:

In 2010, the Pennsylvania Branch of the International Dyslexia Association presented Kathy Hunt with the ‘Janet L. Hoopes Award’ for her distinguished contribution to the field of learning disabilities.

In 2011, the Association of Delaware Valley Independent Schools (ADVIS) presented both Susan Floyd and Kathy Hunt with the ‘Visionary Service Award’ in recognition of their extraordinary vision and commitment to providing the best possible education for students who learn differently.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Center School’s curriculum is multi-faceted, reflecting an understanding of the academic and social-emotional needs of our students as well as recognizing the role that language plays in academic success. Classrooms are places where creativity is fostered and self-advocacy is developed.

It is our belief that every student is capable of academic, social, and emotional growth, and we are dedicated to designing instructional programs which foster each child’s optimal development through the use of small group instruction. This involves the ongoing diagnosis of the strengths and needs of each student, appropriate instructional placement, and a team approach to working with the students.

Our objective is to retain the excellence of an established program while integrating the best of current research and practice. We work to enhance the academic, social, and emotional coping skills needed for future success.

What is your mission statement?

Center School’s mission is to provide children who learn differently with a personalized education to realize their potential and reshape the way they view themselves and their future.
