Heartland Academy, in collaboration with The University of Tulsa College of Arts & Sciences, is a therapeutic day school for students grades 6 – 12. We exist to promote the education and development of students with autism. Our focus is geared to those with High-functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. If you have a student who has struggled in traditional school, Heartland Academy may be the solution you’ve hoped for.
Heartland Academy is not a boarding school, but is an intensive, immersive experience. Students attend classes year-round and our typical school day is longer than a regular school day. Our students master the academics they need to learn, grow, and excel in a supportive environment tailored to their individual needs, strengths and challenges. They also learn and practice life skills such as cooking, cleaning and social interaction.
Helping students lead productive and successful lives.
Heartland Academy prepares students on the autism spectrum, grades 6 through 12, to lead productive and successful lives by providing them a safe and positive academic and social environment that focuses on individual goals.
Small classes. Individual attention.
Classes are small and students may work individually, in dyads or in small groups. We immerse our students into the community and have developed our schedule to allow that to occur on a regular basis.
Bridging the gap between home and school.
We are committed to creating a bridge between home and school. We offer sibling and parent support as well as parent training. We are partners with each of our students’ families in creating an educational environment at school and at home that meets their individual needs.
