We take an individualized approach to learning, and create custom learning paths for every child.
Our education program is comprehensive in nature: Continuous, structured activities guide learning and social interactions throughout the entire day and evening hours.
Each student is assigned both an academic and personal mentor, in keeping with our mission of constant support and growth of the complete person.
Class sizes are small – typically between 5 to 8 students – ensuring targeted help and interventions.
A staff psychologist, speech pathologist and after-hours tutors compliment a staff of supportive, highly trained teaching professionals.
Secure Internet portals provide parents around-the-clock access to their children. Parents may check on student progress, grades, lessons and assignments – and remain reassured their child is on the right track, even from a remote distance.
New and innovative educational programs include Fast ForWord, Spell Read, Polk State College Dual Enrollment, Ridge Technical Center Dual Enrollment, APEX Learning, Power Speak and internships or career shadowing.
