Neurodiversity Success Center

Hill Top Preparatory School is excited to announce the opening of The Neurodiversity Success Center (NSC) in the fall of 2023! The center is open to anyone, including but not limited to students of Hill Top.


For more than 50 years, Hill Top has focused on educating neurodiverse students in grades 5-12 through its day and boarding programs. Hill Top's curriculum is designed to build a quality of self that includes self-recognition, self-advocacy, self-reliance, and self-confidence through social skills development.


Now, the Neurodiversity Success Center offers an opportunity for students and individuals outside the Hill Top Prep Community to participate in unique programming.

These philosophies remain at the forefront of the Neurodiversity Success Center to allow more students and young adults to benefit from this evidence-based training that incorporates a focus on family collaboration.


NSC supports adolescents and young adults as they prepare for success in school, college, life, and the world of work. By providing individually designed and small group learning experiences that maximize and harness unique learning styles, the NSC will aid in developing and strengthening academic, executive function, social, and independent living skills. Parent and family resources play an integral role in the program to reinforce acquired skills and techniques. Programs offered through the NSC will be available to Hill Top students and the greater community as well!


The Neurodiversity Success Center will be broken into three components: PEERS® (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relationship Skills), Executive Function Coaching, and College Advising.
  • PEERS® is an evidence-based social skills intervention program for motivated young
    people who are interested in making and keeping friends and/or handling conflict and
    rejection (adapted from the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the
    University of California-Los Angeles).
  • Executive Function Coaching helps people improve cognitive processes, including
    but not limited to focus, attention, organization, planning, and self-regulation.
  • College Advising will assist students from the early stages of the college admissions
    process through the completion of the application.
