Below you can find more information about our offer:

Life-long learning… This is for everyone, whether student, parent or staff member; a great way to maintain your cognitive ability and flexibility. The Phoenix Centre supports this by offering courses for relaxation, parenting, languages and other competencies. The centre also organises talks on selected topics, in-house training and publishes articles of interest on its internet platform: „Cup of Concrete“.

Individual needs… Individuals may require support to enhance strengths or overcome difficulties. We provide this using various methods, for example: concentration training, reading and writing training, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. We also offer a broad selection of assessment opportunities.

Social and emotional skills… This area focuses on the skills we need to effectively engage with other both socially and later in business; giving your opinion in a self-assured manner, maintaining your own boundaries while respecting those of others, resolving conflict agreeably and proactively and understanding yourself better. Diverse topics are covered including: Social competency, Overcoming and dealing with exam anxiety, Friendship guidance and How to avoid and deal with bullying. We also offer one-on-one therapy sessions and orientation support for families new to the DSJ.

Academics… Last but not least! The Phoenix Centre especially aims to enhance academic performance. We offer supportive instruction designed to reinforce and complement the school subjects. We also have courses aimed at providing an extra challenge to especially motivated and interested students. In addition, we have courses which enhance academic skills e.g. study skills and help build a solid foundation for a successful academic career.
