Our highly qualified teachers and staff cultivate an atmosphere of acceptance, compassion, and encouragement. Academics are designed for motivational learning as well as recognizing individual accomplishments.
Our standards based, research driven curriculum that is in place challenges and nurtures your child’s education, imagination and creativity. Music, Art, Social Skills, Life Skills, Adaptive PE, and Technology are all incorporated into daily and weekly schedules. Occupational and Speech Language therapies are provided by certified, experienced therapists. Each campus has a sensory room providing an area for safe tranquility. Students also engage in group and individual activities in a secure outside play area or on site gymnasium.
Our A+ Academy High School program offers two pathways for graduation:
- the academic pathway which is focused on enriching academic skills within the general education standards.
- the functional pathway which provides learning opportunities focused on functional academics and daily living skills.
Students may follow a single pathway or a combination of the two pathways, depending on their individual needs.
