Inclusive elementary school

UP Academy is a progressive elementary lab school for the inclusion of children with physical disabilities.  Why Progressive?  Each student has an educator advisor who they work closely with to set goals, plan their time and assess their progress through an individualized and project based curriculum.  Why a lab school?  Inclusion like ours has never been done, we aim for a 70% "typical" classroom and a 30% students with physical disabilties ratio; all of our students are cognitively age appropriate and expected to participate fully in project based learning.  All students are given the support that they need to reach their goals and expectations. 

We offer flexible drop-off and pick-up times as well as summer programs so the joy of learning can be year round!

We offer a flexible schedule for our independent study students.  Families may choose two or three days per week or attend for just one class session.  Mandarin, Spanish, Science and Coding are offered as individual classes.

Classes may be taken as a part of UP Academy and supported by our staff for a full educational experience while attending part time or they may be taken as individual classes through our associate buisness, Tap In Talents, which is an Ocean Grove approved vendor.

After school

Our after school program offers STEAM inspired project based curriculum that can be student lead.  Some students may work on a group project while others may choose to work on a "passion project."  Our daily activities vary from learning synonyms to increase vocabulary to making our own clay to creating a smart city of the future.  Families may choose the days of the week that they would like to attend.

In addition, we offer a Spanish immersion after school experience.  Our Spanish educators will teach a love of the language and build vocabulary through fun experiments, art projects, cooking, music, drama and more.  All levels welcome.

Transportation and carpools can be arranged through our partner, Zum.

neurodevelopment program

We believe that a good educational model isn't everyone getting the same thing, it's everyone getting what they need to be successful.  Our unique neurodevelopment program incorporates Conductive Education, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Speech Therapy supported by adaptive learning materials and technology to support each student.  It is fully integrated into the school day so no lessons or ideas are missed and peer interaction and collaboration is maximized.

We may be able to offer additional therapeutic services depending on availablity.
