Students who learn differently need a program tailored to the way they learn best.
At Benchmark School, our exclusive approach goes beyond basic reading programs to reach the whole child.
When our graduates leave Benchmark School, they are confident and competent learners who know their learning styles intimately, and can advocate for their own success.

In much of the country, schools and camps that serve kids with learning differences are scarce.

For others, it can mean moving one’s entire family for a summer at Benchmark.
