Meet PEER Academy

The mission of PEER Academy is to provide an individualized education where each child is empowered to reach his or her full potential through the development of academics and life skills necessary to become self-sufficient adults.

PEER Academy of Knoxville was founded in 2016 and is a fully accredited 501(c)(3) non-profit school, specializing in the needs of children with Autism and other developmental disabilities.

PEER Academy is a school dedicated to educating students with autism and other unique learning styles. We are a fully functional K-12 school that also offers vocational and life skills programs for students on the autism spectrum and developmental disabilities.  PEER Academy proudly utilizes a holistic educational approach for each and every student to be able to achieve their academic, cognitive, and social abilities.
