• The combination of a school environment with embedded therapies supported by an onsite team of professionals. The approach provides structure and consistency that allows students to stabilize, make progress, and gain skills and confidence that translate to home, community, and next steps.
• Regular communication from ACCEPT staff and the sense of team established with parents and families to provide a program tailored to the unique needs, age, interests, and goals of each student.
• The exceptional quality of the teaching staff, and low student to teacher ratios.
• The sense of community and belonging at ACCEPT. Students make friends in a welcoming and supportive environment.
• The close collaboration and partnership with sending districts as students transition to ACCEPT, acclimate and thrive in their classrooms, and when ready, return to their home schools.
