alternative environment for students with learning disabilities.

Quality Education

The Academy aids each student in achieving their greatest potential in life by providing personal tools for success during their academic years. Individualized curriculum creates an optimal learning environment for our students. The Academy will provide a safe, nurturing environment enabling your special child to grow academically, socially and emotionally.

The Academy of St. Louis serves students grades K-12. Our students have varied levels of aptitude in different academic areas. We specialize in educating students with Aspergers Syndrome (Autism spectrum), ADHD, speech/ language delays, and other cognitive learning disabilities.

We fill the gap for students who do not fit the mold of other special education schools or classrooms. We believe our students are served best in a small, consistent, social and learning environment. Academy classrooms have a student to teacher ratio of 7:2. Students are placed in classrooms that fit their cognitive abilities not their grade level. The majority of our students will transition into sheltered workshops, gain employment or volunteer opportunities. Some may complete Certificate of Completion at area Junior Colleges.

At the Academy of St. Louis we believe each child is a unique gift from God.The Academy has changed the lives of many students whose parents never dreamt their child could be accepted and understood at school. At the Academy, you and your child will become a member of our supportive, loving community.
