Welcome to New Horizons Academy!
“If a child can not learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.”
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 educational and intervention programming available and empower children with disabilities to reach 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.
NHA serves over 150 students from 37 school districts across Northwest Ohio between its Wauseon and Holland campuses.
