Founded in 1930, Forman School is a coeducational college preparatory school for grades 9-12 and PG exclusively dedicated to empowering bright students who learn differently. Forman’s expert faculty deliver unparalleled education for academically motivated students with identified learning differences such as dyslexia, executive function difficulties, or attention deficits. Forman develops the whole student, based their unique learning profile, so that every graduate becomes an educated, confident, self-advocate throughout life. In a traditional boarding school setting, students are guided in learning strategies by specialists who are also coaches, mentors, and dorm parents. Forman’s 100% college placement rate reflects the reignited passion for learning our students experience.
Forman School is focused on providing experiential and hands-on learning opportunities to our students through unique programs such as Winterim and The Promethean Program. For two weeks in March, right before Spring Break, Forman students and teachers leave the classroom for our two-week Winterim program. Courses may involve anything from producing a full-length feature film to exploring a foreign country. More than two dozen options are available each year, domestically and abroad. The Promethean Program at Forman School is a talent development program for students at every grade level who are driven to pursue a passion project. Students bring an idea to the table and a dedicated faculty advisor provides the structure and support to ensure that each student makes meaningful progress. Other Promethean students serve as a sounding board. Most important, students have nearly every imaginable tool available to them to make their dreams palpable in the Promethean Lab.
