Ford Program

The new Ford Program utilizes a 5:1 ratio to help students strengthen their executive functioning skills, as well as manage their ADHD, in and out of the classroom.

Why was this program created?

There was a clear need for students to receive additional assistance that did not qualify for the St. Julie Billiart Program. SJB is only for students with language based learning differences. We understand many other students still need help with time management as well as organizational and study skills to help them excel.

We are so excited to start the Ford Program this 2022-2023 school year with 10 students, 5 in 6th grade and 5 in 9th grade. We hope to offer this program to more students, while current members gain the skills to transition out.

Who benefits from the Ford Program?

Maryvale Preparatory School focuses on educating young women for life. To further assist students, Maryvale offers individualized learning programs for different types of learners.

The Ford Program helps students navigate their coursework while strengthening their organization, time management, and study skills. Through direct instruction, students gain critical tools to support academic success in high school as well as college.
