Ben Bronz Academy 
Address: 139 North Main Street
ASD Boatner Building
West Hartford, CT, 06107
Description: Ben Bronz Academy is a full-time academic day program serving students with learning disabilities in grades 2-12. The faculty student ratio is approximately 1:3, with class sizes ranging from one-on-one to ten students. The average class size is four. The syllabus includes all required academic courses and a full range of remedial classes. The Academy includes a Lower School (grades 2-6), a Middle School (grades 6-8), and an Upper School (grades 8-12). Classes are grouped by academic need rather than by grade. The foundation of the teaching methodology is metacognition, which helps students become aware of their thought processes and the language they use in developing problem solving strategies. Language skill development is stressed at all levels and in all classes. Strategies for independence permeate all classes, with chief strategies of Active Learning and data-based measurement of progress used by both teachers and students. Computers are used to facilitate data management, and are mandatory for students to practice skills in reading, keyboarding, spelling and mathematics; to word process; and to research information. The Ben Bronz Reading System is based on years of research and incorporates phonological awareness, fluency, text analysis, and comprehension. The typical BBA student makes more than two years of growth in reading during the first ten months of the program.

This program accepts day students referred by school districts. Ben Bronz Academy is approved by the CT State Dept. of Education as a Special Education Facility. We accept applications for full or partial days from parents and school districts.
