The Hirsch Academy's Full Profile



The Hirsch Academy says

At Hirsch, we know that all children want to belong, they want to be accepted and to have friends. We also know that every child wants to learn and can learn. What we want to know is why a child isnt learning. So we find out. Then we do the most important thing-support the student right now. We meet the child, where they are. We know that they want to succeed but that something is in the way. Hirschs approach is based on the DIR Floortime model interwoven with OT and sensory integration principles. The DIR Floortime model provides a developmental framework of six stages which all children must master for social and emotional success. The model also offers an understanding of individual processing differences that affect a childs ability to manage and master these six developmental levels. Always though, the approach is rooted in the relationship between the child and the supporting adult.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
