How will your child shape the world?

Too often, children with special instructional needs are brought up learning how to adjust to the world – how to survive a place that wasn’t made for them.

But we believe those children, and the world around them, were brought to life by a Creator with grand and beautiful plans. So we built schools that immerse students in the wonder of their surroundings, the love of their communities, and the joy of learning that every child shares.

Each of our special education schools delivers a strong suite of academic, sensory, and spiritual instruction. So students learn more than the skills needed to make it in the world; they learn how to make the world a better place.
