Let this school know you found them on Philadelphia magazine’s Find It Philly.

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


For over 30 years, Center School has educated children with language-based learning differences including, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, ADHD, Visual and Auditory Processing Disorders, and Executive Function Disorder.
From the moment families walk through our doors, they experience a warm and nurturing environment and witness our incredible faculty expertly guiding their students to success on a beautiful 14-acre campus located in the Philadelphia suburb of Abington.

Our success lies in our approach. A low student-teacher ratio enables us to offer personalized instruction to each student. Extraordinarily talented and dedicated teachers discover how their students learn and then teach in a way that is best suited to the individual needs of each student.

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.
