The Student Services Department at Prospect Hill Academy provides and oversees services that support students with diverse learning needs. In accordance with state and federal regulations, Prospect Hill Academy is committed to ensuring that all students receive a free and appropriate public education which fosters academic, emotional, physical, and social growth.
Prospect Hill Academy is committed to an inclusive, differentiated model of education. It is our belief that students with disabilities should be educated, to the maximum extent possible, with their same age peers, and that English learners should be given the opportunity to access the general education curriculum standards while developing their language skills. Our services and programs promote supportive learning environments that encourage all students to reach their individual potential while maintaining high performance standards.

- Special Education (including Occupational Therapy and Speech/Language Therapy)
- Section 504
