Learning Specialist 

About the Organization Barnstable Academy is a top private school in Oakland New Jersey for students in grades 5-12 providing the individual attention, specialized learning programs, and safe environment they need to be successful-without sacrificing the athletics, arts, and electives that make up a traditional school experience. We're a school where bright students and diverse learners receive individual attention in a secure and nurturing environment; a place where students are given the tools and confidence to achieve their personal best. Our college-prep school model ensures that students are well-prepared for college and life beyond.

Our school remains small by design so that we may continue to provide a personalized education to every student in a safe, nurturing environment. With an average class size of 10 students, teachers provide individual attention to each student and address unique strengths and weaknesses. Each class includes auditory, visual, and exploratory teaching methods to meet the demands of a variety of learners. Barnstable provides an ideal environment for bright students who simply aren't thriving in the traditional school setting, and for students with mild learning differences such as ADHD, mild dyslexia, and anxiety. Executive function skills are built into the Barnstable curriculum for these students, ensuring the development of study, organizational, and time management skills.
