“The atmosphere at Pitt Academy is one of acceptance and unity.  For the first time in my daughter’s life, she feels like she fits in.  The teachers and staff are nurturing and encouraging.  It is evident that every student feels loved and valued.  There is no better environment for which to learn and grow.”

-Nancy Mudd, Pitt Academy Parent


“We have tried several different schools before finding our perfect fit at Pitt.  Pitt Academy has been a blessing to our family.  Our daughter loves going to school now!  At Pitt Academy, they give her the freedom to work at her individual level, while still being challenged to improve.  Pitt has a very positive environment for kids who have a variety of educational challenges.  Our daughter comes home from school with confidence because of the different approach they take to teach our kids.  They teach the way our kids learn.”

-Denise McGauley, Pitt Academy Parent


“Pitt Academy is more than a school for my son.  It’s a place where the teachers know him as a person and truly care about him. When I drop him off each morning, I know he is learning more than academics, he is learning about life and how to have a successful one.  I would not trust anyone else with his future.”

-Debbie Holt, Pitt Academy Parent



“I first put my son in Pitt when he was six years old.  The staff’s patience and one-on-one attention started making a huge difference.  He was able to learn, grown and develop both socially and emotionally.  He was so successful I even at one point tried public schools again and I watched him slowly digress due to the overwhelming environment.  A year later I put him back in Pitt and it was by far the best decision I have made.  My son is now 14 and I can not wait to watch him graduate from Pitt in a few years.  I wouldn’t send him anywhere else.”

-Darlene Williams O’Bryan, Pitt Academy Parent


“Before I started school at Pitt, I was overwhelmed at a traditional middle school due to the faster pace compared to my elementary school. At Pitt Academy, I was able to make friends, participate in Special Olympics and learn life skills. After graduating in 2009, I went to Jefferson Community and Technical College where I graduated in 2012. I am currently employed with Dreams with Wings as an Accounting Assistant where I help make a difference in the lives of others. I still compete in Special Olympics swimming, where I compete in the 50 and the 100 free. I greatly enjoyed my time at Pitt and would recommend it for anyone who has a student with learning differences.”
