SWA has been a PBIS award winner for the past three years and incorporates trauma informed and mindfulness practices into our daily programming. We offer Cross Categorical Classrooms (ED, LD, OHI, TBI, ED-P) and Life Skills Classrooms (MIID, MOID, Autism) as well as 45-day placements.


 


Additionally, Southwest Academy provides a temporary short-term placement (Alternative to Suspension) for students who would otherwise be suspended from their home schools. Local districts use ATS for both special education students and general education students. This reduces the number of out of school suspensions for their special education students and the likelihood of repeat behaviors. ATS provides a safe educational environment with support to help the student reintegrate successfully into their home schools.
