How is Thrive Academy Different?

We understand that increasing self-reliance carries a range of meanings for different students. For some individuals, it involves obtaining a job and establishing their own living arrangements. Others may define it as carrying out daily tasks—like cleaning, organizing, and cooking—without the aid of others.

At Thrive Academy, we are interested in more than just academics and test scores. By offering assistance that fosters self-reliance, the capacity to speak up for oneself, and a strong sense of self-assurance, we aim to prepare students for the workforce. In essence, we provide students with the tools necessary for them to thrive in life, paving the way for a fulfilling and satisfying future.

Thrive Academy Admissions Requirements:

  • Students with an Autism diagnosis.
  • Students must demonstrate independence in toileting and eating.

Application Review

And parents will meet with a member of our administration to discuss further the details of Thrive Academy’s purpose and goals for our students.


You will be notified via email within 7-10 business days from the school visit whether your student has been accepted into Thrive Academy.
