The Hawthorne Nonpublic School Program provides special education services to students ages 11-22, in grades 6-12 who have emotional, learning and developmental disabilities. Our program combines prescriptive individualized instruction with small group instruction. Hawthorne Academy works towards mastery of state standards to meet the educational needs and curriculum requirements of our students. Our program utilizes a structured behavior management program that emphasizes positive reinforcement, personal responsibility and accountability.
The school offers individual counseling, language and speech where applicable, and transition services by appropriately licensed/credentialed staff. Transportation is available for students who fall within routes provided by the school, and based upon availability of seats on vans. Other transportation arrangements can be made. Hawthorne Academy actively prepares students for mainstreaming back into public schools, occupational centers, community colleges, and jobs in the community.
