Program Description:

The Hunter School is a small, non-profit school where young boys and girls with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Asperger's Syndrome are nurtured, educated and celebrated. We offer both a residential program and a day school.

If your child is bright, but struggling to cope in a world that is unprepared to deal with his or her differences, Hunter may be the right resource for your family. We teach children ages 5 to 15, to thrive and excel in the classroom and beyond. At Hunter students discover how to:

• Leverage their unique approach to learning
• Conquer negative behaviors and build self-esteem
• Live in harmony with those around them

On this web site you’ll find information about our unique approach to educating children with ADD, ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrom. We are exceptionally skilled at helping children with extreme learning and behavioral challenges.

Nothing takes the place of a personal conversation about your child. A connection with a caring parent is the first step for every successful Hunter student.


-Hunter offers kindergarten through eighth-grade education for children ages 5 through 15. Students may live on campus or commute to Hunter as day students.

-Our students are bright, however their ADD, ADHD or Asperger's Syndrome have caused significant behavioral issues that hinder success and undermine self-esteem.

-We accept about 30 students per year. This small student body allows us to create a caring, intimate environment that nurtures and supports each child individually.

-The Summer Program at Hunter is a six-week residential camp that offers both academic and recreational activities. It's a great way for children and their parents to become familiar with Hunter.

-Hunter's approach provides consistent support and feedback to children who are striving to make behavioral changes.

-The vegetarian diet provided to Hunter students provides essential nutrition for brain function and focus.

-Our goal is to prepare every Hunter student for a successful transition back into his or her home and day school environment.

-Our campus is located on 137 acres of woodland, and borders a pristine lake in central New Hampshire. Although our campus is rural, we are located near two major universities and medical centers, as well as many recreational facilities.

-The Hunter School is approved by the State of New Hampshire Department of Education. We are also SEVIS approved to take international students.

-We love what we do and we are blessed to work with the energetic, challenging, inspiring children who are part of our Hunter community.
