Special Education Resources

Eagle Academy has a longstanding commitment to inclusive education, and we take great pride in our role as the first general population public charter school to admit special education students across a range of levels, from one through four. Our early intervention program has been a transformative force in identifying and supporting students with disabilities who exhibit promising potential for reentry into the traditional classroom setting. We firmly believe that addressing learning needs as early as age three through diagnostic and prescriptive evaluations is the key to helping students successfully transition back into the general education classroom and set them on a trajectory for success. Our investment in children from the earliest stages of their education has demonstrated the remarkable heights they can achieve.


Multi-Sensory Therapy Room: Eagle Academy's Multi-Sensory Therapy Room, under the expert guidance of Occupational Therapists, provides a dynamic learning environment enriched with visually stimulating, auditory, movement-based, and tactile experiences. This resource is tailored to cater to the specific educational needs of students with various exceptionalities, including those with autism, challenging behaviors, developmental disabilities, mental health concerns, and learning disabilities. Our commitment to inclusivity and individualized support is at the heart of this initiative.


Auditory Room: Recognizing the importance of effective communication, Eagle Academy has assembled a team of four dedicated speech and language therapists who work closely with our students. Additionally, our students benefit from Sound Therapy with an integrated listening system, further enhancing their performance within the inclusive classroom setting.


Behavioral Support Counseling: At Eagle Academy, character development and fostering a positive school environment are paramount. We embrace a school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework that emphasizes the practice of Eagle Pride behaviors and character traits. Recognizing and celebrating students for their positive contributions to the school community is an integral part of nurturing their social and emotional growth. Our dedicated behavioral intervention specialist is on hand to support children in addressing challenges that may hinder their ability to learn. By encouraging open dialogue and providing a safe and healthy environment, we ensure that every student at Eagle Academy has the opportunity to thrive both academically and emotionally.


Our commitment to inclusive education, early intervention, and holistic support is a testament to our belief in every child's potential to soar. At Eagle Academy, we don't just educate; we empower, support, and uplift our students to reach their highest aspirations.
