1st and 2nd Grade Applications

In an effort to support our youngest learners who are exhibiting struggles in reading, writing and math, AIM has an alternate application option for current Kindergarten or 1st Graders who have not yet received a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation.

For parents who are not familiar with AIM Academy and the learning profile of the students who attend our program, it is highly recommended that you register to attend our next Virtual Open House.
