It’s Simple. Students who learn differently just need to be taught differently

Dear Families, 

We are so pleased that your journey to find the right academic environment for your child has led you to AIM Academy.

At AIM, we recognize that every child is unique, so we teach students what makes their brain remarkable: how it works; what it needs to be able to read, to write, to solve a mathematical equation, to organize and plan efficiently; to what extent it is able to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary simply by viewing it in a different way. Using a hands-on, evidence-based, data-driven approach to teaching, AIM Academy’s unique program empowers students to become lifelong, fearless learners. 

We encourage you to explore our website, attend a virtual Information Session, and visit us for a Tuesday Tour. Discover if AIM is right for your child, because futures are boundless when children believe that they are smart and that they can learn.

We look forward to sharing our program with you!

Warmly,

Laura Rup, Admissions Director

Tonight, for the first time ever, our son asked if he could read me a book! I was amazed, surprised, happy, and encouraged all at once! He read with courage and motivation, tackling words he did not know at first and persisting through the entire book. A perfect example of AIM's fearless learning!"

AIM's unique educational model supporting children with learning differences and our research institute were featured in April 2020 on WHYY's Movers & Makers.

The episode's theme, Pioneering Women, highlighted the journey of AIM co-founders Pat Roberts and Nancy Blair who first met as parents searching for the best education for their daughters.
