The mission of Groves Academy is to enable people with learning, attention and language disorders to achieve success in school and in life.
As a school, we provide small classes and specialized staff to teach students the skills needed to learn independently, engage in self-advocacy, and develop social competence.
As an outreach center, we contribute to the understanding of learning difficulties through programs and services for families, educators and other professionals.
As a learning community, we value our differences and provide a responsive and respectful environment.
Groves Academy believes in the importance of education as a positive force in the lives of people who have learning, attention and language disorders. We believe that individuals with learning difficulties along with average intelligence and a desire to learn can become positive members of society. We believe that these individuals can confidently face their challenges and achieve greater success when the educational environment addresses their individual academic, social and emotional needs.
We believe that for individuals to reach their full potentials, research-based teaching is essential. We are committed to helping individuals recognize and develop their strengths, compensate for their weaknesses, build effective learning strategies and ultimately become stronger self-advocates. We believe that self-confidence grows as individuals experience success in a community based on strong and caring relationships.
