The Academy is an accredited private school and outpatient therapy clinic with two locations that offers services to students with developmental disabilities in the central Arkansas area. We offer small class sizes allowing every student to receive the attention and support they need to work toward their potential. In addition to challenging academics, the Academy also encourages students to develop socially and emotionally with an emphasis on appropriate social and life skills growth. Outpatient therapy services are also available on site. We work with a variety of private insurance providers as well as ARKids 1st, Medicaid, TEFRA, and TRICARE.
The Academy's mission is to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs have equal opportunities to live, learn, work, and play in their communities.
The Academy is eligible to participate in the Education Freedom Account, which provides scholarships for students with disabilities. In addition, there are two more scholarships available (both income based): Philanthropic and ACE.
