Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Promise's unique approach to special education utilizes multiple integrated therapeutic activities such as occupational therapy and speech-language therapy within each school day. Individually designed academics and therapies equip each student for success in the classroom, work and community. Promise strives to provide an on-ramp for life for individuals with special needs.

Promise's strength lies in its active and collaborative approach. Teachers, therapists and parents strategize continually - sometimes daily - for the success of each student. A myriad of therapies and tools are employed with each individual student helping them reach new and ever-increasing levels of success.

Academic learning is able to occur when sensory motor needs have first been addressed, so every Promise student receives a minimum of 40 minutes of occupational therapy each day. Additionally, speech and language therapy is geared toward developing the functional communication skills used in life.

Therapeutic Approach to Education

By blending academics with faith and multiple therapies into each school day, Promise Christian Academy builds an on-ramp-for-life for its students with special needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our desire is to discover a better way of educating children with special needs. We want parents of children with special needs to know that they are not alone. There is hope for a brighter future for children who are differently-abled.

Promise views every child as an image-bearer of God. We hold five core values: we embrace differences, we celebrate each child, we partner with families, we strategize for success and we strengthen the community in which we live.

It is our joy to be a part of their success!
