Educating Students with Learning Differences
Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Auditory Processing Disorder, or ADHD.
Fairhill is rooted in a strong legacy of providing an exceptional education to students with learning differences. For the past five years the school has been in the process of researching and planning a renovation project that will significantly impact the student and community experience both now and in the future. This renovation project will enhance our campus by providing security; structural; mechanical; and cosmetic improvements as well as add dedicated space for performing arts; improve the educational testing and support services; and increase awareness of the school in the community.

Changing Lives for Over 50 Years
Fairhill's Primary Purpose
Fairhill is a private, non-profit, college preparatory school serving students in grades 1 through 12.
Fairhill’s primary purpose is to provide a superior education for students of average and above intelligence who have been diagnosed with a learning difference such as Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Auditory Processing Disorder, or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Because of a learning difference, these students have frequently experienced frustration in traditional school environments. The result is that their past academic performance does not reflect their potential.
At Fairhill, education is designed for the whole child. We focus on developing a firm foundation in problem-solving and critical-thinking skills that enhance emotional, social, and academic development.
How we nurture the child
Every child has dreams, dreams of a future filled with success. For learning-different students, those dreams can seem frustratingly far away. Fairhill School is dedicated to bringing those dreams to life. When parents and teachers believe in a child and his/her natural talents, that child begins to believe too.
At Fairhill, we show students how to maximize their strengths and minimize their weaknesses, inspiring them to realize their full potential, as students and as individuals. Through a multi-faceted approach, students acquire learning skills that work for them—skills that help them grow, not only in the classroom, but throughout their lives.
When our daughter came to Fairhill in the 6th grade, we had no idea what a blessing this school would be for her. She blossomed while attending Fairhill and we couldn’t be happier. She graduated as class Valedictorian.
