Achieve Kids

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.
