'My husband and I are so thankful as we watch our daughter going to school every day with a smile on her face because she is a confident student and knows that she has the caring, helpful support that she needs in order to learn.' Parent, Class of 2020
AIM Academy's athletic program has taken the Tri-County Independent School League by storm. A number of league records, personal bests and back-to-back wins in Cross Country have set our student athletes on a path of playing competitively in both team and individual sports.
There are occasions throughout the school year for AIM students to enhance their education and explore the world beyond their classroom and school community. These include both local and global opportunities and each is designed to enrich their understanding of themselves and the world at large.
AIM has a 100% college acceptance rate. Our 2016 graduating class received more than $4 million dollars in merit-based scholarships offers. Each year, our seniors participate in a collaborative college program allowing qualified students to be dually-enrolled in college courses and receive six college credits.
Our mission is to provide extraordinary educational opportunities to children with language based learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, utilizing research based intervention strategies and an arts based learning environment that is college preparatory in scope and sequence and to develop a center for educational excellence and professional development to disseminate best practices to educators by providing access to the latest research-based curriculum, technology, and training.

- AIM Academy was created with the belief that children with language based learning disabilities can and will thrive in a rigorous academic setting when they are taught by a highly committed, experienced and creative faculty who have ongoing access to the latest research, best practices, technological resources, and experts in their field. We dedicate ourselves to putting research into practice every day. Our students thrive in classrooms that offer multi-sensory and experiential learning and our programs are designed to foster self-esteem and social responsibility. Their academic and intellectual development is further enhanced by an array of extracurricular activities and enrichment in the arts, athletics and community service. It is our goal, that upon graduation, our students are prepared for the challenges, complexities and choices available to them at university and beyond. Curiosity, collaboration, compassion, confidence and critical thinking are their tools for success.
