Clifford Academy serves students who have struggled to engage in a traditional public school and/or to meet the academic and behavior expectations in a traditional public school. Our students benefit from the small class size in a therapeutic setting with the support from educators trained in special education and the social/emotional needs of our students. Ultimately, our goal is to work with students to develop the necessary academic, vocational and social emotional skills to thrive in school, at home and in the community.
