Personalized learning at Janus starts by understanding the specific challenges that should be addressed for your child. Admission consideration to The Janus School includes your child’s learning difference, their potential for skill improvement, and the absence of a primary emotional or behavioral disability. We encourage you to join us for an Open House or to schedule a private tour to experience the Janus difference for yourself.

A Place to Grow

Susan Kauffman, Current Janus Parent

“Our daughter Madison came to Janus two years ago.  At that time, she was at a true low point.  Not just struggling with daily school work but she was becoming more isolated and anxious every day.  Maddie had been seeing a great therapist weekly at this point for over a year.  Janus made a huge difference for her.  We honestly could not believe that in just a month of being there how much had changed for the better.”

Why Janus?

When you join the Janus family, your child will become part of a supportive school environment where they are warmly welcomed by teachers and classmates every day.
