Milestones Day School

  • Milestones is an approved and accredited year-round private day school serving students from 1st grade through age 22.
  • Our expertise is students who struggle with neurocognitive disabilities such as Asperger`s Syndrome and nonverbal learning disabilities. Our students often have co-occurring challenges such as anxiety, OCD, learning disabilities, or other psychiatric issues.
  • Milestones` program uses a developmental-based philosophy to understand children. We believe our students don`t have "behaviors" but rather are missing developmental skills. Milestones helps students by teaching those critical skills to enable true growth that generalizes beyond the walls of our school.
  • We have a strong parent-partnership program where parents and staff work in collaboration to help students achieve goals.
  • We offer an intensive therapeutic approach with daily instruction on social skills, coping and sensory skills, executive functioning, emotional development, and self-esteem. Our therapeutic programming is provided side-by-side with our rigorous academic curriculum.
  • Milestones also offers an innovative transitions program for students age 16-22. Students who are of transition age participate in internships where they gain valuable work experience and some of our students also participate in dual enrollment where they attend college with support during school hours.
  • We have a rolling admission and tours of our facility are given weekly.
