Who We Are


We empower cerebrodiverse students to reach their full potential.


We envision a world where every child with language-based learning differences and attention issues can access exceptional education.


We provide transformative education experiences and thought leadership that have a lifelong impact on students.


The Southport School creates an environment for cerebrodiverse students with language-based learning differences like dyslexia and attention issues that recognizes individual strengths, promotes independent thinking, develops self-esteem and self-advocacy, and supports a successful transition for continued academic achievement. In our coeducational elementary, middle, and summer academic program, students can safely take risks championed by a student-focused faculty that uses research and evidence-based approaches.
