Educating & Empowering Special Needs Youth
Serendipity is a pioneer in providing specialized education services to students aged 5-21. We nurture, educate, and empower special needs children through a unique program that’s designed to reach students who have been unable to thrive in a traditional learning environment. By tailoring our curriculum and instruction to each student’s individual learning needs, we are able to help our students realize success, often for the first time.
— Tiffany Smith, Principal
Staffed by Experienced Educators and Mental Health Professionals
The success of our educational program is rooted in our dedicated team of experienced Teacher-Counselors. In a traditional school environment, you’ll find just one teacher for a large group of students. At Serendipity, students benefit from a multi-disciplinary team of professionals, who provide academic instruction and assistance, as well as social, emotional, communication, and behavioral support. Through individualized and small group instruction, hands-on activities, and applied projects, our students experience academic success and exceptional social growth. By incorporating Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) as a school-wide model, we strive to prepare our students to be respectful, responsible, and safe citizens of our community.
