School Notes

  • Academy360 Lower and Upper Schools are NJ State Board of Education Approved Private Schools for students with autism and related disabilities. Our educational programs are based on meeting the needs of each student and providing the tools they need to reach their goals.
  • We take education to the practical level, translating reading, math and other academic subjects into life skills that continue to build as they grow.In addition to academics, we created our programs to let kids be kids, offering all the traditional school activities from sports and music to after school activities and more.
  • Our students` happiness and life experiences are as important (or moreso) as the services they need.Through respect and communication, Academy360 fosters an open, collaborative partnership with parents, students, teachers, support staff and district Child Study Teams.

School Reviews

Our son who is 17 has been a student at TCI since he was 5 years old. We feel extremely fortunate that he has been a part of the TCI program throughout his school years. TCI has worked with us and our son to overcome his challenges and they work with him to reach his highest potential. Although there have been a couple of teachers who we weren't thrilled with (over the 12 years he’s been at TCI), the vast majority of TCI’s staff are absolutely incredible. TCI does a great job of teaching each student based on their individual needs and potential. We are excited about their adult program, The Center for Independence, and the possibility of our son continuing to grow with TCI's programs.
