The New Community School

The New Community School is Central Virginia’s only college preparatory school for grades six through twelve devoted solely to restructuring the language foundation of dyslexic students, New Community focuses every month on turning dyslexia around.
The New Community Schooll believes that, even as late as high school, students with dyslexia can increase their proficiency in basic language skills. Daily, in small classes of two to four students, Language Fundamentals teachers present strategies designed to help students improve their reading, writing and spelling skills, thereby leading them to greater academic independence. New Community teachers know that students with dyslexia are capable of mastering the complex ideas that accompany college preparatory curriculum. Utilizing instructional methods that compliment alternative learning styles, teachers challenge the students’ intellect in academic courses. 

Now enrolling students for grades 6 – 12.
