Overview

Our mission is to graduate or mainstream every student. Working together we will strive to create a positive, safe environment where all are respected. Here students will gain a sense of self-worth and individuality through academic and behavioral achievement.

Hawthorne Academy provides special education services to students, ages 9-22, in grades 4-12 who have emotional, learning and developmental disabilities-including Asperger's Syndrome and high functioning Autism. Our program combines prescriptive individualized instruction (30% of the day) with small group instruction (70% of the day). Hawthorne Academy works towards mastery of state standards to meet the educational needs and curriculum requirements of our students. An alternative, functional curriculum prepares students who are not on a diploma track for post high school by developing their social, basic academic, vocational and citizenship skills. Our program utilizes a structured behavior management program that emphasizes positive reinforcement and accountability. The school offers individual counseling, language and speech and transition services by appropriately licensed/credentialed staff. Transportation is available for students who fall within routes provided by the school and based upon availability of seats on vans. Other transportation arrangements can be made. Hawthorne Academy actively pursues preparing students for mainstreaming back into public schools, occupational centers, community colleges and jobs in the community. An Occupational Therapy program is available for students who qualify.
