The Cove School's Full Profile



The Cove School says

For over 65 years, Cove has served as a vital stepping-stone in our community, helping children with learning disabilities develop the skills and self-confidence required to successfully transition to community schools or post-secondary education. We provide a comprehensive, individualized approach to learning. At Cove, we recognize the complex learning needs of students with learning disabilities, and we provide the integrated specialized services that contribute greatly to their success.

Cove parents, teachers and specialists work hand-in-hand to ensure the best possible educational plans for our students. When students arrive at Cove, they immediately feel the difference that comes from a nurturing, supportive environment. They feel safe, yet challenged, to reach their fullest potential, and they often make new friends, establishing the social relationships that are so important in life.

The Cove School serves children with complex learning disabilities from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Cove is located in Northbrook, Illinois and serves over 150 students from over 60 different districts throughout the Chicagoland area.

Mission Statement

The Cove School provides highly individualized education and life strategies for children with learning disabilities.



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.
