Our Philosophy

PEER Academy offers innovative programs that take into account the individual needs of each child. We believe that every child deserves to flourish and learn to his or her best ability. And so, PEER Academy provides a comprehensive individualized educational program for each child, utilizing a low student-to-teacher ratio.

Educational research indicates the effectiveness of highly structured, intense teaching methods. Our programs will reflect these findings and are based on the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis. We will provide a multi-faceted approach to learning, addressing the needs of each student while meeting each student where he or she is academically.

In addition to academics, PEER Academy will emphasize the development of skills in communication, self-help, independence, social emotional and cognitive skills. PEER Academy’s mission is to enable our students to learn to be as independent as possible while allowing the least restrictive educational setting, to help them grow into their full potential.

PEER Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at PEER Academy and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
