a message from our director of admission, jaime feinman

"Welcome prospective families!

We’re thrilled you are here to learn more about Forman and the opportunities for your child to thrive in an educational setting unlike any they’ve experienced.

A Forman education is innovative—and wholly transformative—for so many reasons. One of the most important facets is that every student here truly learns differently. For many students, this was a source of frustration in the past as it became a major element of their identity in school.

At Forman, having a learning difference doesn’t define you. Every student has an area of academic weakness—whether it’s executive functioning, math, or reading—so their learning style is no longer something that sets them apart from peers. We’ve found that when teens cease to focus on their learning struggles, there’s a sense of freedom and empowerment. Suddenly, they have the energy to rediscover (or uncover!) the passions, interests, and talents that genuinely form their identity as unique and successful young adults.

I invite you to campus to see Forman in action and learn what makes it so special for yourself. During the tour, you’ll meet our devoted faculty, who know how to teach each individual student because we’re dedicated to the professional development of teachers. You’ll see students who are scholars, leaders, scientists, musicians, athletes, and actors. You’ll discover inspiring learning spaces. Most importantly, you’ll find a community that instills the confidence and critical skills that carry students to success in the classroom, college, and beyond. 

Please feel free to contact anyone on our admission team and get started on becoming part of our amazing community. We can’t wait to meet you.”
