Our programs

Through an individualized approach, our programs are designed to focus on the person: to educate, promote strengths, enhance life skills and develop independence. We provide an inclusive, warm and welcoming setting to help our students and adults thrive.  


Academy360 combines the flexibility of a private school with the experience of a public school to give students age 3-21 with autism and related disabilities the opportunity to grow, develop and learn at their own pace. Whatever their needs, we strive to help our students achieve a level of independence.


Our comprehensive day habilitation program enriches the lives of adults with autism or related disabilities through education, socialization and therapeutic support, so each individual can achieve their own maximum potential.


Our after-hours, weekend and summer programs — open to Academy360 students and budding filmmakers age 14 and up — provide exploration and learning through filmmaking, video editing, podcasting, game creation and graphic arts.


Master new dishes, refine skills and explore the world of cooking in our after-school and weekend classes — open to Academy360 students and aspiring chefs age 14 and up.

Independence360's program teaches, strengthens and helps reinforce Jack's skills in areas such as math, reading and writing, communicating, and daily living. This makes it a little easier for him to navigate and understand the daily life we all take for granted.

Due to Academy360’s dedicated staff, Joseph has made steady progress since day one. Their hard work and expertise have helped develop Joseph’s academic, social, speech, problem solving, and pre-vocational skills.

I’ve been coming to Academy360 for the Adult Enrichment Program since it started in 2011. I’ve taken lots of interesting classes during that time, like cooking, cake decorating, art, movie making, photography, and advanced travel training. Attending the program has helped me to become more independent, figure out what I really enjoy in life, and make new friends.
