Excellent therapeutic services for children who struggle. The K-1-2 program is strong and growing. Seasoned and experienced administrative team members drive robust learning communities with loads of excellent learning, arts, and behavior supports.

Friendship Academy is a wonderful school for children who struggle with behavior and conduct problems. My grandson thrived there and overcame many challenges. Each person there has a heart of gold and really loves children. Superior! And we have seen the results of their tremendous work!
