Who are Raskob Students?

“Raskobian’s” are bright, inquisitive, and creative. Some are social butterflies while others may prefer to hang with a couple close buds. Raskob students have average to above average academic potential, but are underachieving at their current schools.

The Raskob Day School program is designed to meet the needs of our students through an individualized academic program that incorporates one-on-one instruction and small group experience. As a result, Raskob’s curriculum operates on multiple levels from remedial to advanced. Raskob is committed to the development of self-directed learners who understand their disability and how it impacts them in a variety of settings.

Raskob’s program is designed for students who:

  • are of average to above average cognitive ability
  • have difficulty with decoding, spelling and writing
  • have difficulty with math calculation and reasoning
  • have well developed problem solving skills
  • struggle with slow processing, executive functioning, or working memory challenges
  • Students who are diagnosed with:
      • Specific Learning Disability
      • Dyslexia, or other Reading Disorders
      • Dysgraphia, or other Disorders of Written Expression
      • ADHD
      • Auditory Processing Disorder

 

Our program does not meet the needs of students who have:

  • Moderate to severe emotional or behavioral issues
  • Academic delays resulting primarily from visual, hearing, or motor handicaps
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Benefit from behavioral interventions

 

In reviewing applications and test results for placement in the Day School, some factors taken into consideration are:

  1. Age: The age range for acceptance is 7 through 15 years upon graduation
  2. Grade Placement: Individual educational programming is part of Raskob Day School. Small groups are formed within the classroom according to individual educational needs. Once a student is enrolled, retention or “skipping a grade” are not parts of our policy.
