Sandhills School gives bright students the tools they need to succeed and become leaders among their peers and in the community. At Sandhills, highly specialized teachers focus on the strengths of each student and help them navigate traditional obstacles of learning. Sandhills provides a supportive, college preparatory environment where first through twelfth grade students rediscover the joy of learning and renew their intellectual curiosity. Through authentic success in small, hands-on classes, leadership opportunities on the sports field and the stage, traveling internationally and serving the community, our students gain confidence in their abilities, and fears and anxieties begin to fade. Sandhills parents notice a positive difference in their child almost immediately.
For more than 40 years, Sandhills School has changed the lives of young people diagnosed with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia or ADHD. As the only Orton-Gillingham accredited college-preparatory school in the Midlands, Sandhills has teachers who are highly trained to provide research-based individualized instruction tailored to each student’s academic needs. This approach produces tremendous progress in everything from reading, writing and math to study skills, organization and college entrance test preparation. Our graduates go on to the colleges of their choice, are recognized by state and national scholarships and are equipped with the tools they need to succeed in college and beyond.
The extracurricular activities offered each year depends on the participation and interest of the students.
