Educational Services :
Exceptional Academy offers TWO different programs to meet the needs of our students and families:
Our FULL-TIME private school academic classes are for students in grades 1-6. Classes will be held Monday-Friday from 8:30am-2:30pm. Individualized learning plans, one-on-one attention by qualified and experienced teachers, and small class sizes help ensure the success of our students. Academic offerings include reading, writing, math, science, and technology courses. Additionally, we offer enrichment courses in art, social skills, life skills, and physical education to ensure our students are well rounded and embrace a healthy lifestyle.
Our PART-TIME homeschool enrichment classes are for students in grades K-6. Enrichment classes will be held Monday-Thursday 9:00am-12:00pm. Students can take as many classes they would like per week, but must commit on a monthly basis. Enrichment classes will be geared toward Social and Life Skills. A Social and Life Skills curriculum will be used in addition to a rotation of activities geared at helping kids to interact and socialize with each other while learning and having fun: Art, STEM, physical education, games, group learning centers, imaginative play, team building skills, role playing are just a few of the activities that will be available.
Our FULL-TIME private school classes and PART-TIME homeschool enrichment classes are for any kind of learner, not just for children who are differently-abled. Exceptional Academy is a BIG supporter of inclusion and want to help young people understand at an early age that all people, regardless of their abilities or health care needs, have the right to be respected and appreciated.
Due to small class and staff sizes, students who need extra help will be required to have an aid, RBT (Registered Behavior Technician) or therapist accompany them in either the FULL-TIME or PART-TIME classes.
Supportive Clinical Services:
Exceptional Academy offers in-house integrated ABA therapy service support to our students and our families, if needed, through the ABA therapy company Collaborative Behavior Group (CBG). Select insurance providers are accepted through CBG for their ABA therapy services. Please contact us for more information about contracting therapy services with CBG and to ensure your insurance provider is accepted.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy that focuses on improving specific behaviors, such as social skills, communication, reading, and academics as well as adaptive learning skills, such as fine motor dexterity, hygiene, grooming, domestic capabilities, punctuality, and job competence. ABA is effective for children and adults with psychological disorders in a variety of settings, including schools, workplaces, homes, and clinics. It has also been shown that consistent ABA can significantly improve behaviors and skills and decrease the need for special services. (Psychologytoday.com)
