Children have one shot at childhood.
At Academy360, we embrace the idea that typical childhood experiences are the right of all children so we work hard to engage students in high interest activities designed to foster socialization and self-esteem.
“Playing basketball helped my son improve his social skills through team effort. He is now more willing to participate in group activities and has joined the school marching band in town. TCI sports are great!”
– Virginia L.
Teamwork and interdependence is at the core of our sports program. Our Academy360 “Cougars” have fun while they build skills.
- Basketball as a Varsity sport in a league with other special needs schools
- Cheerleading at the Middle School and High School levels
- Flag Football
…and much more
Academy360 activities are designed to help our students interact with their peers in a relaxed, social setting, where they can create friendships and lasting memories of good times – a central part of any childhood. In addition to school-based activities, we are committed to facilitating opportunities for students to be integrated into cultural and recreational activities in the larger community.
- School Musicals
- Themed Dances
- A Spring Prom
- Awards Dinner
- Enrichment Trips to places like Sandy Hook, New York City, Caldwell Community Center, Essex County Environmental Center, and more
- Cultural trips to see live Broadway and off-Broadway shows, musical performances, dance performances, and visit museums
“The guitar club brought out Justin’s musical talent. He has made new friends, feels successful and he’s taking guitar lessons every week.”
