Letter from Head of School

Welcome to our Website!

Center School is now in its 27th year of educating children who have language based learning differences in our spacious facility located on 14 beautiful, grassy, and tree-filled acres. We are a small school by design; this focus and our student teacher ratio of 8:1 enable us to offer personalized instruction to our students. We now have hundreds of alumni who have gone on to educational success in high school, college and beyond. They enjoy satisfying careers in diverse industries.

Our students’ success is due to our faculty’s dedication, experience, and expertise. Our faculty is highly qualified. Most teachers have master’s degrees, reading specialist certifications, and other expertise that enhances our teaching approach. They teach curricula that are created to support the Pennsylvania Core Standards which facilitates a student’s transition into our school and ensures an education in alignment with their peers. Methods proven by research and practice to be the most effective for our students are employed. While most of our students have reading challenges to face, and a large part of each school day focuses on reading and writing, we believe in educating the whole child. Our students also take core subjects in mathematics, writing, science, and social studies. Students rotate through classes in Mindfulness and Movement, Art, Music, Physical Education, and Guidance which includes include Executive Functioning and Learning Styles. We also offer drama and after-school sports teams that compete against other local private schools.

As you meander through these pages I hope you will get a feeling for the warmth and supportive atmosphere which permeates Center School. The best way to get to know us is to visit us and experience our welcoming environment. Please make an appointment to come by.

Best Wishes,

Jeffrey Nick
Head of School
