Full Day School

The full day scho­ol program offers a specialized, educational curriculum for students, ages 6-15, with moderate to severe learning disabilities and who have average to above average intelligence. Under the direction of Dr. Casey Crnich, Executive Director, and a faculty of learning disability specialists, each student has access to:

  • A comprehensive learning plan that links specific diagnostic information, with specialized instruction, modified curricula and other related services (e.g., occupational therapy, counseling, speech therapy).
  • Intensive, one-to-one assistance using state-of-the-art materials and methods to address specific learning difficulties.

Summer School

Hyde Park Day School offers an intensive multi-sensory language arts and math program for students with learning disabilities, in 2nd through 8th grades. Students can enroll in either or both programs.
