What is the Warren Glen Academy?
Why Choose Us?
Warren Glen Academy is a private, non-profit special education school designed to better support and meet the challenges of students with special needs. Unlike your home school district, Warren Glen Academy can offer additional support services and flexibility your child requires. We provide academic, behavioral, and social supports to a wide range of students on the autism spectrum and significant behavioral and learning challenges in northern, western and central New Jersey. We offer a therapeutic emphasis in a quiet, peaceful, safe place for students who are accepted for who they are and the potential of who they can become and what they can achieve.
We help your child expand their horizon as a diverse learner.
We specialize in servicing children who are identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delays, Health Impairment, Multiple Disabilities, Speech and Language Impairments, Emotional and Behavioral Disabilities, ADD, and ADHD. Our approach to special education has been proven to be effective, as our many successful years and hundreds of families and sending schools will testify.
How WGA is Different
Empower students to own their choices
At Warren Glen Academy, we view special education students as students, as opposed to children with special needs or behavioral challenges. As a result, emphasis is placed on responsibility, accountability, and self-reliance, more than traditional special ed classrooms, as we can help empower students to own their choices and make better choices in the future.
Additionally, our culture reduces pressure on the child. At Warren Glen Academy, we accept our students for who they are, rather than forcing them to fit into a mainstream setting. We consequently help students relate to one another through acceptance and cooperation which promotes better learning and behavior. It's no surprise our graduation rates are far higher than special needs students who are forced into inclusion education in public schools. Many of our students go on to college or technical schools. Those who do not follow an academic path leave Warren Glen Academy with life skills that empower them in full-time careers.
