Welcome to Our Journey

Benjamin Academy is a private school south of Atlanta, designed to meet the needs of children who learn differently. We promote growth while establishing a unique lesson plan designed to meet student needs in the classroom daily. Most children who enroll at our school have not been successful in a typical classroom setting. Despite many small accommodations, the larger classroom size often prohibits an opportunity for children to achieve their full potential. As children progress, parents find their children may need a classroom conducive to their individual needs. Benjamin Academy is a school is for high functioning students, who after a diagnosis determines they may need a different learning environment. As we work to ensure all students have the appropriate environment for their needs, currently we are unable to serve students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, Behavior Intervention Plans, Oppositional Defiant Disorder or other Conduct Disorders.

At Benjamin Academy we provide assistance in the classroom by promoting a small classroom setting, individual lesson plans which allow additional time or breaks if needed, along with traditional methods of learning which are taught in a general classroom setting. Evidence-based findings confirm a smaller learning environment can be the key that many students can succeed, maximizing their full potential. We combine technology, educational Community Based field trips, and social gatherings thereby driving communication and peer interaction for our student population.

If your child struggles with reading, math, communication, comprehension, social groups or basic life skills, our school may be an option. We offer a traditional academic track, an alternative track, and our newly Career Transition for older students. Our students are taught on their own timeline, to achieve their maximum potential. Homeschooled students are accepted with "transient" status. Please contact us to discuss this academic opportunity!

Why Benjamin Academy?

Our small class size has proved successful for an optimal learning experience. One-on-One assessments are conducted with each student to ensure they are on a successful track for independence. In short, we accept students where they are. All students enrolled must have independence with regulation of feeding, bathroom hygiene and no aggressive behaviors.

Academic Track - Utilizing STEAM, we provide preparation for college, and can offer a college prep diploma. Evidence-Based learning confirms use of smaller classrooms enhances the overall experience, in a academic environment.

Alternative Track- Utilizing Executive Functioning Skills, with strong emphasis on organizing, time-management, social behavior and personal etiquette such as dressing, grooming and hygiene. Evidence-Based learning confirms use of smaller classrooms enhances the overall experience, in a alternative environment. Our school atmosphere provides a realistic approach to learning, with less anxiety students may experience with larger groups of students per classroom.

Education - Instruction is delivered by educated teachers, who at a minimum, possess a bachelor's degree, in addition to special certifications and concentrations that support our unique classroom learning. We partner in our community with Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Physical Therapists to provide services weekly, intensive 1-on-1 sessions as recommended.
