Thank you for considering Chartwell School. We welcome calls and emails from prospective students, families, and community members.
Our students have average or better intelligence but may have struggled in traditional classrooms due to dyslexia or other learning disabilities and academic challenges. We provide co-ed students ages 5-18 with the skills, knowledge, and tools they need to succeed.
A Chartwell education includes: small class sizes, a 1:5 teacher-to-student ratio, attention to learning styles, emphasis on social skills and character building, multi-sensory learning, integrated technology, enrichment activities, sports, and a healthful, green campus.

We welcome interested families, educators, and community members to attend our monthly Open House events. Guests can meet faculty and staff, tour our campus, and learn more about our K-8 and high school programs. Children and teens are welcome!
In this workshop, participants will rotate through six learning stations, each consisting of simple activities designed to give a hands-on awareness of what dyslexic persons experience every day. Activities will include language-related tasks similar to those encountered in the classroom and workplace. The exercises will be followed by a group discussion. Join us for one of our most popular workshops!
The mission of Chartwell School is to diagnostically educate students with specific learning variations, including dyslexia, in a way that provides them with the academic skills, confidence, creativity and perseverance necessary to meet the challenges of mainstream education and lifelong learning.
