About » History


Founded in 1989 by Kathy Hunt and Susan Floyd, both of whom have dyslexic sons, Center School was formed out of the belief that children who struggle with reading and learning would thrive in an environment where their challenges were understood, their strengths celebrated, and their needs addressed.

The accomplishments of these women have not gone unnoticed.

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.

Center School continues to be viewed as the trusted advisor for educators throughout the Delaware Valley, providing expertise in every issue related to learning differences.
