A STEP UP ACADEMY IS A PRIVATE, NON-PROFIT, CO-EDUCATIONAL AND NON-SECTARIAN SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM. A STEP UP ACADEMY PROVIDES SPECIAL EDUCATION FOR KINDERGARTEN THROUGH SIXTH GRADE.
A Step Up Academy was established and licensed for Kindergarten and First Grade in August, 2013 by the Pennsylvania Department of Education with an expansion to include Preschool through Fourth Grade in August, 2014. A Step Up Academy's research-based program is designed to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorder so they may achieve academic and social success.
A strong school to home relationship with parent involvement and training is the keystone to the success of our students. A Step Up Academy offers an open door policy for parents, siblings, and home teams to visit any time of the school day and encourages active participation in the academic and social success of their student. Collaboration between our teachers and parents is a core value of our program with six-week progress meetings occurring for each student. This ensures the team is working together and is keeping abreast of student progress at school and at home.
