2013-2014 Tuition & Fees
Lexis Preparatory School strongly believes that each child has a unique learning style. It is counter to that principle to expect all children to adapt to the teaching style of an instructor or school. Rather, at Lexis, we customize the curriculum to optimize each child’s learning, so that learning becomes natural and enjoyable.
Our tuition is structured in an equally customized manner. After obtaining a thorough history from parents and past teachers, reviewing recent educational evaluations, and observing each child, a customized curriculum is developed for each Lexis student through a combination of classroom-based courses (10 – 12 students), small-group instruction (2 – 4 students), and individualized instruction.

• Executive Function Skills/Study and Organizational Skills
Executive Function is the ability to organize and prioritize one’s cognitive processes. This includes selective attention and the ability to plan ahead, stop and start activities, shift from one activity to another, and monitor one’s own behavior. Executive function and study skills are strongly emphasized within the classroom, and throughout the day. Our emphasis on executive function skill building will teach students how to organize their time, plan for future tasks, complete assignments on time, and organize their materials (bookbags, lockers, notebooks). Students will learn how to effectively use a planner and organizer to break down assignments, manage activities and plan for upcoming projects. Our staff will work with parents to ensure that what is learned in session is transferred to activities at home.
• Social Skills Enhancement
The ability to easily make new friends, the talent to maintain friendships, and the ability to recognize social cues in all our relationships are without question the most important skills children learn in life. Our staff recognizes the critical importance of social skills enhancement and will support the children throughout the day. In addition, the program emphasizes character education, conflict resolution and problem-solving skills.
Academic Support Services
ADDITIONAL READING SUPPORT
Reading Support is specifically designed for students who have been diagnosed with a reading disorder (Dyslexia, Language Learning Disorder, etc.) and who need additional individualized instruction to augment classroom instruction.
Students diagnosed with learning disabilities or attention disorders often struggle with the complex task of writing due to the multifaceted nature of the writing process. Students with identified disabilities in written expression or executive function deficits in writing will receive individualized/small group support to walk them through the writing process in a step-by-step manner. Students will utilize various computer software programs to help them develop their organizational, planning and production skills.
Students identified with a mild disability (1 year below grade level) in mathematics (reasoning or computation) will receive instruction via small group support utilizing multisensory strategies.
