Outreach & Workshops

Churchill Center & School’s Sandra K. Gilligan School Partnerships & Outreach Program is essential in strengthening our mission of fostering greater understanding and support for all people with learning disabilities by training other educators, supporting families, and enlightening the community.

Since the inception of our Community Outreach Program in 1990, more than 37,500 educators, parents, students, and other supporters have been given the opportunity to experience and broaden their understanding of learning disabilities.

We offer Teacher Workshops, Parent Workshops, Student Workshops, Community Service Events, and a Speaker Series. Each one of these programs offers our community a variety of services to recognize learning disabilities and to then equip the participants with strategies and knowledge to offer further assistance.

17th Annual College Opportunities Fair

WHEN: Monday, February 27, 2023
TIME: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
WHERE: Churchill Center & School

You are invited to attend our annual College Opportunities Fair!

This event is free and open to all area high school students and their families. (High school counselors are also welcome).

Colleges and universities will showcase their programs and services available for LD and ADHD students, and students will be provided with the chance to explore their educational options in a small, more intimate setting.

Sometimes a larger college fair atmosphere can be overwhelming and it is hard to know what questions to ask - especially about disability services. This environment allows for better communication between schools and prospective students.

School Representatives will be available in individual rooms so families will be able to visit at their own pace. Reps will speak about their school's featured services, admissions criteria, what makes them unique, answer questions and more.

* Come whenever you want and stay as long as you need! *

RSVPs are preferred but not required. Walk-ins are welcome.
