The Prentice School's Full Profile



The Prentice School says

The Prentice School is an independent, nonprofit, co-educational day school for grades PK - 12 that is dedicated to the needs of students with language learning differences (also known as Specific Language Disability or Dyslexia). Despite the many stereotypes associated with this syndrome, these children can and do learn - they simply learn differently. In fact, children with language learning differences are bright and multi-talented. At Prentice, we provide a supportive, multi-sensory, curriculum-spanning approach that encourages the development of academic competence, effective work habits, and self-discipline. Prentice is dedicated to teaching dyslexic children the skills they need to succeed in today's world. Prentice is the only school in Orange County, and one of a very few in California, with a program for dyslexic children. It serves students from wide geographic areas, including Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties.



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.
