Excelsior Academy Private School provides individualized instruction, educational therapy, and small classroom sizes to students with learning disabilities. These disabilities include ADD/ADHD (trouble focusing, hyperactivity), Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and other difficulties with regards to reading, writing and arithmetic.

Our staff is able to achieve this by utilizing methods from the National Institute of Learning Development (NILD) that have helped improve visual and auditory processing and cognitive functioning skills.
Our Houston private school caters to all types of students while also tailoring our curriculum and instruction to fit the unique needs of your child.
