History

For thirty-four years, Greenwood has been recognized as the preeminent boarding school for high potential boys in grades 6 through 12 who face complex language-based learning challenges. As we continue to review and advance our curriculum to ensure the highest level of research-based expertise, we have formalized and further developed programs to better support students with AD/HD and Executive Function skill deficits, dyslexia, and related learning differences. With these enhancements, and with new facilities that reflect the sophistication on our program--including a new cottage-style dormitory, and an expanded arts building that houses woodworking, metal forging, and a ceramics studio--there are many new things to see and experience at Greenwood!

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
