The New Community School's Full Profile



The New Community School says

The New Community School transforms lives by creating an educational environment that celebrates the gifts of dyslexia and related language-based learning differences. The School empowers minds that think differently and inspires tomorrow’s leaders and innovators.


The students who come to The New Community School are bright, but have specific language skill deficits. These challenges can impair their ability to acquire knowledge and their ability to demonstrate what they know. Standardized testing reveals deficits in reading, spelling and/or math computation skills. Deficits in written expression, organizational skills and study skills are more difficult to quantify, but are no less crucial for academic success at the secondary level. All of the academic departments have built-in structures and strategies that are designed not only to help our students to compensate for their skill deficits but to help them develop reliable and effective organizational and study techniques. As students develop the skills needed to succeed in future educational settings, supports and structures are gradually withdrawn and students are expected to exercise greater independence.

Mission Statement

The New Community School empowers bright, talented students who are challenged by dyslexia and related language-based learning differences. The innovative and research-based college preparatory curriculum utilizes a customized educational approach to build skills in language and math and to foster academic and personal strengths – igniting the passions and gifts of unique minds.



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.
