Students with diagnosed learning differences, such as dyslexia, who are accepted to Gr. 9 at Wheeler and would benefit from additional academic support and advising related to their learning profile, are welcome to apply for Polaris.
Polaris is the name of the North Star — used as a guide for navigation and a symbol for finding direction.
Polaris offers guidance as an academic support program for bright, qualified high school students with learning differences who are from public, private and parochial schools and who have been accepted to the Wheeler Upper School. The first cohort of accepted 9th-grade students begin classes in Fall 2020.
. Enrollment is limited.
