Expectation and Support Lead to Growth and Independence
Our faculty recognizes the potential in each student, and they are expertly trained to help students develop academic confidence and independence. The tools and strategies we teach change and develop with a student’s academic maturity and are tailored to his or her specific needs.
Forman teachers have extensive professional training in teaching students with learning differences, and learning at Forman is as individualized as a student’s fingerprints.
Research and Innovative Classrooms
Through the Institute, national experts in the field of learning differences regularly visit our campus to train our faculty. As a result, we have many master teachers on staff whose expertise in current research and teaching methods about learning differences informs our approach to education. The results are dynamic classrooms and thriving independent learners.
Courses Designed for Different Learners
A Forman education is designed to foster academic confidence and independence. Institute classes are designed to do just that and are integrated into each student’s daily academic schedule.
All teachers at Forman understand the needs of each student and partner with the Institute to create a tailored approach.
With strategies woven into all classes, students develop the necessary skills to be confident and successful learners, ready for college and life beyond the classroom.

Continuous Evaluation and Support
Learning is an active, dynamic process. Constant change and growth occurs in each student day-to-day as well as year-to-year. Recognizing this, we are uniquely dedicated to supporting the educational journey of each of our students.
Teachers are devoted to actively engaging with each student and their family. In addition, each academic department has experts who specialize in certain areas of learning. We evaluate and modify each student’s academic experience based on his or her mastery of subject matter. The result is a both a positive and rigorous academic experience that prepares them for a successful college career.
