Academy for Precision Learning (APL) is an inclusive K-12 school serving students across the autisum spectrum with their typically developing peers in an academically challenging and socially vibriant enviroment. The mission of APL is to transform childrens` lives through small daily moments that, taken together, create an unrivaled educational experience that is rigorous and demanding, yet joyful and rewarding.
Every "small moment" is achieved through intensive and exhaustive planning and preparation by our professional staff. All children are welcomed as equal participants in the classroom and encouraged as members of their peer group. Then, teachers engage students in lessons that are either created from scratch or adapted from a curriculum to be both accessible and meaningful. Finally, teachers measure progress in an individualized manner so that every student`s performance is given worthwhile context in their overall progress as a learner. In this way, students with autism, ADHD, anxiety, learning disabilities, students who are highly achieving, and students with no diagnosis at all can participate together in their home classroom. This is how we define and enact inclusion in our school not after the fact, but instead by creating it from the ground up, as classrooms and lessons are being developed in the first place.

School Notes

  • Founded in 2007, APL is an inclusive K-12 school serving students across the autism spectrum along with their typically developing peers in an inclusive, academically challenging and socially vibrant environment. All children are welcomed as equal participants in the classroom and encouraged as members of their peer group.  Teachers engage students in lessons that are either created from scratch or adapted from a curriculum to be both accessible and meaningful. Finally, teachers measure progress in an individualized manner so that every student`s performance is given worthwhile context in their overall progress as a learner. In this way, students with autism, ADHD, anxiety, learning differences, students who are highly achieving, and students with no diagnosis at all can participate together in their home classroom. This is how we define and enact inclusion in our school - by creating it from the ground up, as classrooms and lessons are being developed. In order to best succeed in their classroom, some students with autism may require additional services from our embedded Roots Clinic`s Applied Behavior Analysis therapy (ABA) . ABA therapy has been demonstrated in research as the primary effective treatment for autism, and can also be successfully used to support individuals with other diagnoses or needs. To ensure a high quality and clinically sound service package for every student in need of our services, our professional team includes staff certified and licensed across a range of organizations regulating our practice. Our services include scaffolding support and training for teachers based on observational assessment of the classroom. It also includes individualized programming, incorporating rigorous assessment tools, ongoing treatment planning, and monitoring for students who receive ABA services through The ROOTS Clinic. The common thread across our services is that they are provided in the school environment.
