Our Program

Philips Academy focuses on educating middle school and high school students with complex language, learning and/or cognitive disabilities, as well as autism spectrum disorders or developmental disabilities.  Our program utilizes a well-researched curriculum that provides a unique combination of evidence-based practices, remediation, practical instruction, life skills and community-based application. Employing experienced and qualified Special Education teachers, Philips Academy is the only program of its kind in the Charlotte community.

Philips Academy also offers a post-secondary program called Bridges that offers highly motivated young adults with complex learning and social challenges the opportunity to continue their education in areas of vocational/career skills and independent living within the community.
