Daniel Academy is a K-6 private elementary school that was specially designed for children with learning disabilities and/or emotional issues. Whether your child is on the autism spectrum, has been diagnosed with ADHD, or is simply behind one or more grade levels and needs more intensive instruction, the Daniel team can help.
The Daniel Academy offers a safe, nurturing environment in which personnel are specially trained to understand the unique problems faced by these children. Our school differs from the traditional school setting in a variety of ways including:
* a low student/teacher ratio of 12:1 to ensure each child receives individual attention to support their unique skills and alleviate deficits
* a curriculum infused with regular enrichment classes such as music, art therapy, computer, physical education and yoga to develop creative skills and to explore interests
* on-site auxiliary services, including group and individual therapy
The Daniel Academy accepts both the McKay and Gardiner Scholarships, which are designed to allow parents of students with disabilities to choose the best learning environment for their children. These scholarships offset the cost of tuition and make the Daniel Academy very affordable.
In the 2015/2016 school year, the Daniel Academy had a very high retention rate and a 91 percent promotion rate. We are expecting similar results for the 2016/2017 year. We are now accepting applications for the 2017/2018 school year. Please visit our website at www.danielacademyjax.com to learn more.
