The student is at the core of what we do. We specialize in working with students with unique and often misunderstood ways of learning. At MCP students are able to make meaning of their experiences and to thrive. We welcome students that may have suffered in other schools, and those who have been under challenged. Our approach is to embrace the emotional, social and academic aspects of each student’s life, and to develop an appropriate path to a personal definition of success.
What makes us different from other schools that serve students with learning differences?
- We seek a student body composed of diverse learners including but not limited to those with ADD/ADHD, Anxiety, Specific Learning Disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia…), ASD and those that are exceptionally gifted, talented and skilled in other ways
- We don’t define students by their disabilities. We understand that people are complex and have both strengths and areas for growth
- We encourage students to find and pursue their passions
- We teach students not to accept negative self-concepts, but to embrace a positive vision for a future that is truly their own
