Established in 2014, the Day School at Educational Resources is designed to provide a specialized educational environment to students in grades 6-12. Classes are small and each student’s curriculum is customized to meet his/her special needs.Becoming a successful student builds confidence while boosting skill levels. The experience can be life-changing for our students.
Because of our small class sizes and one-on-one instruction, our Day School is an ideal learning environment for students who suffer from emotional, physical, social, and behavioral problems.
Our specialized teaching staff is skilled in working with students who experience:
- learning differences
- physical illness
- physically handicapping conditions
- school phobia
What to Expect
Day School students take core courses matching those offered in local private, parochial, and public schools. These courses include mathematics, English, social studies, physical education, and science. Our standards-based curriculum is research-based and incorporates nationally vetted best practices. The NCAA has approved Educational Resources core courses. We can provide a full course catalogue upon request.
Qualified and experienced teachers present all instruction. Your student will receive personalized attention in a program tailored specifically to his or her abilities and needs. This environment allows us to raise your student’s confidence and improve his or her learning experience. Our individualized instruction allow us to focus on working through limitations your student experiences and ensure that he or she is not left behind academically.
Day School operates Monday through Thursday, with classes beginning at 9 a.m. All curricula adheres to state guidelines so students meet graduation requirements for either Kentucky’s pre-college curriculum or the Kentucky basic diploma.
Education packages are available by the semester, quarter, or by the academic year.
