Academic Support

Students in PreK-Class 12 who need additional support to achieve their academic goals have the opportunity to work with our dedicated learning specialists.

Embedded as faculty members within each division, our learning specialists work closely with homeroom teachers in the Lower School and with the department leadership, classroom teachers, and advisors in the Middle School and Upper School.

Students work toward individualized academic and skills-based goals while remaining focused on the core tenants of the Dexter Southfield academic experience: to learn the fundamentals, to develop independence and self-advocacy, and to be prepared for the emerging challenges of a changing world.
