The Classical Academy Department of Special Education’s mission ensures that children with disabilities receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). We accomplish this by working collaboratively with families, students, teachers, and other professionals to promote student success through individualized learning and support.
The Classical Academy is committed to serving the needs of all students. Our school believes that the Least Restrictive Environment begins in the general education classroom/setting for all students, and supplemental aids and services are added to the students’ education setting according to individual needs.
Students who are identified as having learning or behavioral disabilities are provided a comprehensive range of services as specified in a students’ Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The Classical Academy’s Special Education program includes a range of services for students found eligible under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
The Classical Academy believes in a team approach: student, parent, general education teacher, special education teacher, and any additional instrumental team member.
