Notes for Prospective Students
WHAT MAKES CLEAR HORIZONS ACADEMY UNIQUE?
We are the only non-profit private school in Utah County that
specializes in teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
above a preschool age.
We are also the only private school in all
of utah that uses the DIR Model as a foundation to our educational
philosophy and approach.
The DIR Model encourages a
developmentally-appropriate, individualized program for each child
that is relationship-based and includes many other therapies which
a child may need to succeed.
We strongly encourage parent involvement and encourage them to be a
core part of their child's educational progress.
WHAT IS OUR APPROACH?
Our approach is a relationship-based learning environment which is
individualized to each child with goals determined on their own
With this individuality, we incorporate many
additional practices the child may need, such as Sensory
Integration, Errorless Learning, PECS and other visual
communication systems, and other therapy programs.
We also work
closely with parents as a team to help the child progress.
meetings held every other week allow us to consistently help to
keep the child on the right educational path.
WHAT DOES OUR CURRICULUM LOOK LIKE?
Being a state certified school under the Carson Smith Scholarship
legislation, we teach academic subjects on an individual basis or
in small groups.
We reinforce learning through various activities,
such as dramatic play, music, motor play, etc.
Every child learns
The general curricular guidelines are set by the
state, but how the instruction is presented to each child is based
on his/her individual needs.
WHAT DOES OUR TUITION LOOK LIKE?
Tuition for each child varies, as it is income-based, on both
household income and the number of other children in the home.
of the tuition may include the Carson Smith Special Education
Scholarship (Utah state funding) if the child qualifies.
addition, the school and its governing foundation hold many fund
raising events and otherwise collect donations from the general
public, corporations, and other generous charities and foundations
to provide financial assistance through partial scholarships.
