About Our School

Helping Students Overcome Learning Challenges

At Solstice Day School, we provide an unconditional commitment to every student to help them develop the skills and attitude necessary for lifelong learning.

We empower our students through highly qualified staff, meaningful learning experiences and a respectful, involved educational environment. We work alongside each student to help them learn and practice the skills they need to become productive, self-aware, and responsible members of the community.

Our Trauma-Informed Approach to Learning

At Solstice Day School, we practice an evidence-based, trauma-informed approach to educating and caring for students.

Trauma-informed care means understanding, respecting, and responding appropriately to the effects trauma has played on a student. This includes promoting a culture of healing, safety, and empowerment.

Our trauma-informed care model follows seven commitments:

  1. Emotional intelligence
  2. Growth and change
  3. Non-violence
  4. Open communication
  5. Shared governance
  6. Social learning
  7. Social responsibility

Powered by these commitments, we help students expand on their strengths and abilities as well as develop interpersonal and social skills.
