Perkiomen School is focused on the success of every student. A variety of academic support programs are in place to encourage self-advocacy and to find individual strategies that work for each child's learning style. Learn more below.
"The Learning Center has provided additional structure for our son through a warm and nurturing environment. Ms. Squitieri, in particular, has become a trusted and welcome resource, and is always willing to go the extra mile to help. We are so grateful to have a strong advocate for our son who both understands and appreciates him."

The Learning Center (TLC) at Perkiomen School provides services for students with learning differences. The Learning Center is a comprehensive learning support program that includes a full-time academic class, 1:1 customized support, and multifaceted progress monitoring.
We encourage every student enrolled in The Learning Center to cultivate the following:
- A growth mindset: the acute awareness that intelligence and learning is not fixed but rather malleable. It is the belief that one can learn more and grow intellectually with hard work and perseverance.
- Signature strengths: developing the capacity to identify and deploy their personal and academic strengths in service of actualizing their full potential and overcoming learning challenges.
- Metacognition & Resiliency: growing in one's ability to reflect on the ways in which they learn and understanding that one can thrive amidst adversity; perceiving challenges as opportunities to understand one's own unique gifts.
