Welcome to the Havern School Community!
For more than a half-century, it has been our mission to help K-8 students who struggle with diagnosed learning disabilities to become confident learners who will leave Havern with the skills to continue to succeed in life far beyond our hallways. Through specialized, small group instruction and integrated therapies, our highly-skilled and compassionate teachers and therapists offer a comprehensive and collaborative team approach to addressing the complex learning needs of our student body.
We are pleased that you have found us as you search for the best possible options for educating your child and hope that you will take the opportunity to learn more about our very unique school.

“Havern School has been an incredible experience for my child who has grown socially, emotionally and academically since his attendance there. He is so much more confident in himself and his abilities. Every child deserves a school like Havern!”
– Robin Albert, Havern Parent
Havern Center is fortunate to have received a CARES Act (PPP) small business loan to help assist our school during this period of economic downturn. The loan is forgivable and will turn into a grant once the requirements of the loan have been met. We are anticipating this happening by the end of this calendar year.
As part of receiving CARES Act (PPP) funding, Havern is subject to Title IX* and partial 504** regulations during the interim period before our loan is forgiven. As a result, I have been appointed as the Title IX and Section 504 administrator during this time. I will also respond to any allegations of discrimination or harassment.
Once the loan has been forgiven, the requirement for us to have an official Title IX / Section 504 administrator will be removed. We are, however, committed to ensuring that we continue to have administrators that monitor and respond to any potential discrimination or harassment issues, and I will continue in the role as part of my duties as Business Manager.
My contact information is:
*Title IX is a federal civil rights law in the USA that was passed as part of the education amendments in 1972. It states “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
**Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which we are already covered under, Section 504 relates to ensuring individuals are not subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
