The Churchill School was incorporated as a not-for-profit school in 1977. Summer sessions were held in 1978 and 1979. In 1980, the Board of Trustees voted to open a year-round school, continuing the summer sessions and adding a nine-month program September through May. After operating in a leased space for four years, the school moved to its own building in the fall of 1984. The building served as Churchill’s permanent home until the fall of 2007 when the school was moved to its current location in Town & Country, Missouri.
As Churchill continued to develop, administrators became more aware of the lack of knowledge about learning disabilities in the community. To remedy this problem, the Community Outreach Program was implemented in 1990. It’s purpose - to educate everyone from parents and siblings to educators themselves about what a learning disability truly is. To better reflect Churchill’s position as a community resource, and the importance of the Outreach Program, The Churchill School became Churchill Center & School in 2004.
Today Churchill Center & School still operates on the original principles and provides individualized instruction for 150 students. It remains a place of hope for students and families, a source of knowledge for professionals and a point of pride for the community.
