Welcome to Annie Malone's Mission

We are glad you are here and ready to help guide you and your family through our admissions process. Our team will work with you to determine if our unique academic and therapeutic program will benefit your child. We have open enrollment throughout our 10-month academic year, and we accept students on a rolling basis. We invite you to request a tour anytime during the year so you can see our program in action.

 

Your child can enroll at Annie Malone through contractual agreements through their home school district. Home school districts determine placement through the IEP process. 

Individual Learning Program

Our unique program comes from a holistic and individualized approach, which combines unconditional support academically, emotionally, and socially for each student in a structured but flexible environment. We strive to foster a vibrant and positive school culture where faculty engage every student to build trusting and meaningful relationships.

Our Staff

Annie Malone’s teachers and therapists collaborate along with our students’ families to develop individualized plans specific to each student’s time at Annie Malone. These plans combine the academics and life skills they need to meet or exceed their aspirations for the future. Our goal is to ensure that their academic success and therapeutic growth are strong, allowing them to go on to greater success when they leave us.

At Annie Malone, we know every student deserves the chance to fulfill their own hopes and dreams for a successful future.
