New Horizons Academy… Where kids come first!
New Horizons Academy at Sara’s Garden offers a holistic, all-encompassing educational path for children who have special learning needs and are preschool through grade twelve. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of educational programming available and empower children with disabilities to recognize and optimize their full potential.
New Horizons does not solely focus on any one area of development; rather, each developmental domain (social, emotional, communicative, physical, and cognitive) is developed simultaneously throughout the school day. Great importance is placed on setting high goals and expectations and providing students with the appropriate assistance required for them to achieve their individual goals. Providing an academic curriculum that is challenging is of utmost importance, while simultaneously discovering and exploring the ways our students are best able to access that curriculum.
At New Horizons, Conductive Education methodology is utilized for students who have neuromotor disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and traumatic brain injury. Use of this educational system ensures that our students are able to learn to be as independent as possible. Sensory integration is used for children who are on the autism spectrum and for any other children who would benefit from it. This assists them in their learning process and provides them with tools and strategies as they are learning to be as independent as possible.
