Discover What Can Be Achieved

There are many labels placed on special needs students.  At Pitt Academy, we understand students don’t come with a “one-size-fits-all” label. In fact, we see our students as individuals: with a unique pattern of strengths, learning styles and challenges. We  focus on a child’s abilities, not his or her disabilities.

Pitt Academy is a fully accredited Kindergarten through 12th grade school.  Our individualized program, adapted curriculum, outstanding instructors and vibrant community are committed to helping our students develop the skills and self-confidence necessary to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
