  • For almost 50 years Achieve Kids has offered a place where acceptance is the key to being welcomed into the community.
  • We acknowledge it is not always easy, but we know that today's difficulties are tomorrow's opportunities for success.
  • This philosophy allows students to slowly build their self-esteem and learn to take chances.
  • Trying leads to success and success leads to hope for a future of inclusion.
  • Achieve Kids vision is for every child to achieve the maximum possible self-reliance and have the best possible quality of life in our community, and for their families to have confidence in their future.
  • We provide special education and mental health services to children who have developmental, emotional and severe behavioral problems, and support for their families.
  • We do this through our non-public school campuses, after-school outpatient mental health clinics, and partnerships within public school special education classes.
  • Our programs are distinguished by our creative use of a wide variety of resources to meet the individual needs of each child and family.
