Admissions Events

We offer a wide variety of admission events where prospective families can learn more about The Hillside School. Review the options below, and connect with us soon!

Open Houses (In-Person)

Our students are smart, yet they struggle in a traditional school setting due to learning disabilities and/or ADHD. As a result, we provide a unique environment with specialized technology and support. Open Houses discuss our educational approach and how it meets our students’ needs, covering the following topics:

  • Executive Skills
  • Assistive Technology and Applications
  • ELA and Math
  • and Language

We host 90-minute in-person Open Houses several times a year; please check back for our future dates.

Virtual Sessions

Virtual Sessions are are held online through Zoom throughout the year. These 30 to 60-minute sessions focus on topics like admission and which students are a good fit with our mission, provide details regarding a Specialist’s area of the school – including art, STEAM, guidance, or technology – or discuss ways The Hillside School can be affordable for families. Join us for an upcoming session!
