Woodhouse Academy 
Address: 4 Oxford Road
Building F
Milford, CT, 06460
Description: Woodhouse Academy is a therapeutic day school designed to meet the needs of adolescents (grades 8-12) with average and above average intelligence who are challenged by learning difficulties and struggling with social/emotional growth issues. They are youngsters who have experienced failure and difficulties in other school settings. Their problems interfere with successful school experiences and healthy development. The Woodhouse program is designed for adolescents who experience difficulty understanding and forming social relationships, attention and organization issues, learning and motivation problems, difficult behavior patterns, anxiety, depression, and specific disorders (OCD, PDD, Asperger's, School Phobia, Social Anxiety) that interfere with academic success. Frequently, these problems create conditions that interfere with the student's availability for learning and adversely impact educational performance. The Woodhouse program is not designed for children who are overly aggressive, violent, or sexually inappropriate. The Academy's mission is to provide our students with a challenging and supportive education combined with experiences that help them develop ways to overcome past difficulties and learn new and/or lacking skills. Woodhouse Academy students benefit from a program with: adolescent specialization, solid educational experiences, small class sizes, individualized and personalized attention, special education techniques, psycho-educational approach, parent support and guidance, social skills development and a strong problem solving orientation. This program accepts day students who have been referred by school districts.

Woodhouse Academy is a Connecticut State Department of Education Approved Program.
