Hyde Park Day School -Northfield campus says

Hyde Park Day School seeks to prepare students for a successful transition to mainstream schools through a rigorous individualized curriculum focusing on academic and self-advocacy skills in a collaborative environment. Hyde Park Day School believes that the complex nature of significant learning disabilities necessitate the delivery of a program that focuses on the remediation of fundamental skills, the development of strategies to compensate for learning challenges, and the use of appropriate accommodations. The goal of this highly individualized curriculum, which is driven by a strong focus on developing self understanding and awareness, is to enhance self-esteem, self-confidence, and a positive attitude toward learning.


Since January 2000, the full day scho­ol program has offered a specialized, educational curriculum for students, ages 6-15, with moderate to severe learning disabilities and who have average to above average intelligence. Under the direction of Dr. Casey Crnich, Executive Director, and a faculty of learning disability specialists, regular education teachers, social workers, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists, each student has access to:

A comprehensive learning plan that links specific diagnostic information, specialized instruction, modified curricula and appropriate related services (e.g., occupational therapy, counseling, speech therapy); Intensive, one-to-one assistance using state-of-the-art remedial materials and methods to address specific learning difficulties; Regular education teachers co-teaching with learning disabilities specialists; Appropriate modification of each student’s regular education curricula.

Mission Statement

The mission of Hyde Park Day School (HPDS) is to provide students with learning disabilities of average-to-superior intelligence an innovative and comprehensive educational model that will help prepare them for a successful transition to public or private schools in their home community.



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.
