Specializing in Dyslexia, ADHD & Other Learning Differences

Through no fault of their own, a substantial number of well intentioned children — including very bright ones — experience significant difficulty in learning to read. This frustrating and persistent problem in learning to read is called Dyslexia.

Like Dyslexia, ADHD is a neuro-developmental disorder. As such, ADHD can also significantly compromise the student’s academic progress in the classroom.

A PLACE TO THRIVE

An Independent, Nurturing School for Children with Learning Differences in Pennington, New Jersey

Cambridge School is an independent, K-12 day school that specializes in helping students with language-based learning differences, such as dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia, auditory processing disorder, and executive function difficulties, among others. However, we believe that our students have learning differences, not learning disabilities.

At Cambridge School, we provide positive educational opportunities tailored to each child’s personal strengths and learning styles in small classes led by our expertly trained faculty. We offer a comprehensive, evidence-based program that is designed to help students overcome their challenges while supporting and encouraging the pursuits in which they excel.

Jim Peters Memorial Scholarship

Cambridge School is proud to announce the Jim Peters Memorial Scholarship for a new student to attend Cambridge School for the 2024-2025 school year.

Jim and Deb Peters founded Cambridge School in 2001 to help students who learn differently thrive. They worked side by side for 24 years making their dream a reality.  Thousands of students have benefited from a Cambridge education and nothing made the Peters family happier than celebrating their success.  

The Jim Peters Memorial Scholarship is offered in the same spirit that Jim embodied, one of kindness and generosity. Jim believed that Cambridge School truly opened the door to a brighter future. To commemorate his extraordinary legacy this $50,000 scholarship will allow a deserving new student to attend Cambridge School. Eligible candidates must be a first time applicant entering grades 6th through 10th.  Deadline to apply is May 31, 2024.

A letter of recommendation is required to provide information about the applicant’s ability to show extraordinary kindness, empathy, and a commitment to treat others as they would like to be treated, traits that are embodied in the Cambridge School Bill of Rights and Responsibilities, as well as demonstrated financial need.

If you are interested in applying your child to Cambridge, please contact our Admission Department: (609)-730-9553

I truly believe my sons would not be the people they are today without the loving support they receive at Cambridge.

  • Social Cognitive Strategies™

    For most of us, interacting with others seems to come naturally. However, students with social challenges often lack the ability to think through and succeed in daily social situations. For these individuals, “social thinking” must be learned and practiced. Research has identified a 75% co-occurrence of social communication difficulties in children with learning differences (Forness and Kavale, 1996, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2016).

    Learn More

  • Occupational Therapy

    Language-based learning differences often have associated or co-occurring conditions that further impact the learning process (Deponio, 2004, Boada et al.,2012), with a number of studies showing significant co-occurrences with dyslexia.
