Is AIM Right for My Child?

AIM Academy’s program is designed for students who have been formally diagnosed with language-based learning disabilities/differences.

The college preparatory curriculum at AIM Academy is designed to meet the needs of the learning disabled child with the following profiles:

  • Dyslexia (specific learning disability in reading)
  • Dyscalculia (specific learning disability in math)
  • Dysgraphia (specific learning disability in writing)
  • Information Processing (including Auditory Processing)
  • ADHD, Executive Functioning or Anxiety in combination with a language-based learning difference

The program at AIM Academy is not suitable for every student. Examples of learning profiles that are not well-supported at AIM include:

  • Autism Spectrum disorders
  • Intellectual disability or borderline intellectual disability
  • Emotional disturbance or behavioral conduct disorder

Diversity at AIM reflects a varied range of learning profiles as well as racial, religious, cultural, economic, educational, and social backgrounds among our students. AIM Academy recognizes that each person brings an element of diversity to our campus simply by being a student who learns differently. Each of our students has strengths and talents as well as areas that require support. We actively pursue diversity and maintain an inclusive philosophy towards all students, faculty and staff. The School attempts to create socio-economic and cultural diversity through a significant distribution of financial aid, which represents approximately 10% percent of the tuition budget.

AIM Academy encourages applications from and admits students of any racial, ethnic or religious background. Its programs and policies are applied with equal consideration to all its applicants and students.
