Churchill Center & School’s 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 31,000 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.

College Opportunities Fair

You are invited to attend our annual College Opportunities Fair! This event is open to all area high school students and their families.

The Fair is a chance for colleges to showcase their programs and services available for LD and ADHD students, and to give students a chance to explore their options in a small, more intimate setting.

Representatives will be available in individual rooms so families can visit at their own pace. Reps will speak on their school's featured services, admissions criteria, what makes them unique and will also answer any questions you may have.

Come whenever you want that evening and stay for as long as you need!
