Nellie P. Covert School

  • The Nellie P. Covert School is a private educational facility that provides positive academic learning experiences as well as behavioral and social skill growth for students in K-12 with specialized behavioral health needs.
  • The mission of Covert is to provide a safe and consistent environment through an integrated approach that fosters healthy growth in our children.
  • The Nellie P. Covert School is accredited through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and the Arizona Department of Education.
  • At this school the Arizona's Children Association education program has developed from the belief that active participation in a positive learning environment will enable a child to begin to recover from the emotional disturbance that has disrupted the normal developmental process.
  • Active participation, visual, auditory, kinesthetic learning, all will allow the child to begin to learn the academic, social, and behavioral skills necessary for successful re-entry into public school and the community.
