Our Academic Program.

TSS believes that learning happens best and students progress faster in small groups. This approach enables teachers to tailor instruction at our independent school to the individual learning needs of each child while focusing on the strengths they bring to the classroom. Students who are elementary and middle school aged challenged with dyslexia, ADHD, auditory processing disorders, and other language-based learning differences can in time successfully transition to more traditional programs that fits his or her needs.

Students come to TSS to unlock their full potential. Instead of a one-size-fits-all philosophy, we focus on understanding how each student learns best. Then, into every classroom and every co-curricular activity, our expert faculty integrate literacy and executive function strategies that are grounded in scientific and educational research.

With a 4:1 student-to-faculty ration, there is no failure here because we focus on strengths as a foundation for learning. Our faculty are passionate about educating students with learning disabilities. 

Each TSS student has the following academic programming every day.

Our Expert Faculty Empowers Learners.

At The Southport School, our world-class faculty meets students where they are. All classroom teachers are trained in structured literacy instruction, and the best evidence-based approaches for remediating students with language-based learning differences like dyslexia. 

Professional development is a priority at The Southport School. Our teachers undergo extensive in-house training before stepping into classrooms, then receive weekly professional training from regional and national experts while benefitting from continuous mentorship.

With a firm mindset that they must reach each student and then deliver the best research and evidence-based instruction possible to help them succeed, our teachers develop concrete strategies to extract, analyze, and guide each student to their full potential.
