The Prospect Program Academic Program
At The Prospect Program we believe that there is no "one size fits all" solution for remediating learning disabilities. Our staff draws from a range of proven research-based strategies and materials to construct a rich and multifaceted academic program. With a clear emphasis on explicit, direct instruction and diagnostic teaching, our highly skilled teachers and staff uniquely tailor instruction to unequivocally meet the needs of each student.
The Prospect Program's comprehensive curriculum parallels the scope and sequence of Wooster School as well as many local independent and public schools. Multi-sensory instruction and deeply layered literacy instruction are the bedrock of all academic content areas.
Additionally, the use of technology, as a learning and instructional tool, shapes the academic infrastructure upon which The Prospect Program curriculum is built. Students enjoy all the benefits of Prospect's small group instruction while fully immersed in the broader Wooster community for co-curricular instruction and mixing with a larger peer group.
The Prospect Program provides a secure, structured and nurturing environment designed to ensure that each student acquires appropriately matched academic content and skills. Through a robust, challenging and personalized curriculum, self-esteem flourishes and Prospect Program students become active learners who are better able to advocate for themselves in meaningful ways.
