The discovery school is designed for students
with specific academic needs and learning differences.
DISCOVERY SCHOOL READING LIST 2023-2024
The Discovery School (DS) believes in the uniqueness of every learner. Our purpose is to provide practical learning solutions for students who learn differently so they can attain their individual academic excellence as part of the complete community of CCS. We have created an atmosphere in which students are nurtured, encouraged, and challenged to explore their talents and use their strengths in order to reach their potential. We work closely with the classroom teachers, school administrators, and parents to provide individual and small group instruction daily in the areas of mathematics, reading, and language.
We have made great strides in providing support to students with varied learning styles. Since we are unable to accommodate all levels of need for students who seek our assistance, we have developed a set of guidelines for use in the CCS admissions process. These guidelines are subject to change as the appropriate resources are made available to us.
In order to be considered for acceptance into Discovery School and determine if the needs of the student are within the scope of our service capabilities, we require the following:
Complete file of psychological testing, diagnosis, and recommendations from a licensed professional
Complete cumulative record of educational history
Interview with the DS Director, appropriate school administrator and headmaster (if deemed necessary)
Understand and agree that acceptance is on a contingency basis during the first full semester of participation.
Parent training and behavior consultation services for skill deficits, challenging behaviors, or language and communication weaknesses
Collaboration with teachers, staff, and parents
On campus, direct therapy for all ages using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Private contract with consultant, initial contact (free of charge)
