Lower School

The Joy School Summer Programs have been cancelled due to COVID-19. For more information, please visit our COVID-19 page.

Our students find the JOY in learning through direct, purposeful instruction in a safe, supportive environment with peers who share similar needs.

Students learn to celebrate their areas of strength while gaining skills and strategies to support their areas of weakness. They return to their schools with a renewed sense of confidence and a stronger understanding of themselves as learners.

Skill Builders is an academic remediation program focused on addressing the most common areas of difficulty for students with learning differences: reading, writing, spelling, math and handwriting/keyboarding.

Students will learn to celebrate their areas of strength while gaining skills and strategies to support their areas of weakness. Students will return to their schools with a renewed sense of confidence and a stronger understanding of themselves as a learner.
