Miriam Academy is an independent special education high school designed to empower unique learners in grades 9th through 12th grade through an intentionally created community that meets the academic and social needs of its students. Students at Miriam Academy are taught the skills necessary to engage with the post-secondary world through a purposeful development of self-advocacy and citizenship skills that allow for purposeful transitional planning. Successful transitional planning at Miriam Academy is the result of intentional partnerships, experiences, and interactions that begin as soon as students are enrolled. Students who succeed at Miriam demonstrate curiosity and the desire to learn, but struggle in typical classrooms where they may not fit the mold. Miriam Academy celebrates and develops each student’s unique strengths while identifying, explaining, and supporting their challenges, which may include learning disabilities, attention deficits, speech/language deficits, autism spectrum disorder, or sensory-motor delays. On-site speech/language and occupational therapy services are also available. Our personalized learning plans are created in partnership with teachers, therapists, and families and include goals in academic and social development tailored to each student.
