Kentwood Prep School: Nurturing Potential, Empowering Success
Kentwood Preparatory School is more than just an educational institution. It's a haven for students who possess the potential to thrive but struggle to find success in traditional schools. These children may be diagnosed with ADHD, Asperger's or other related social or communication difficulties. Some may not even have a diagnosis at all. However, at Kentwood, we believe that every child can learn and excel when given the right support and environment.
Our Students, Our Priority
We are clear about the population we cater to. We do not accept students deemed to be emotionally disturbed or a danger to themselves or others. Our focus is on students who are average to bright and are unable to succeed in conventional schooling systems due to various reasons.
A Whole-Child Approach
At Kentwood, we understand that a child with a problem is a family with a problem — and, by extension, a society with a problem. Our goal, therefore, extends beyond academics. We strive to restore or maintain healthy families as we nurture the students. This whole-child approach ensures that our students receive comprehensive support, both at school and home.
Our staff and consultants come from diverse professional backgrounds, including psychology, social work, education, cognitive language, and perceptual motor. This multidisciplinary expertise allows us to identify problems accurately, implement effective intervention strategies, and monitor progress consistently.
Beyond the Classroom
In addition to our school program, our staff has experience with our population that encompasses boarding schools, overnight summer camp programs, home management systems, parent support groups, parent/child advocacy, and workshops. These experiences inform our teaching strategies and interventions, enabling us to meet each child's unique needs effectively.
The Module Program and Cogmotics System
Our unique Module Program and Cogmotics System are designed to fine-tune academic skills, sharpen life skills, hone social skills, and establish functional family systems. We believe in equipping our students with a comprehensive set of skills that will help them succeed not just at school, but also at home and in society at large.
