Upper School Igniting the Brilliance in Neurodiverse Students

Groves Academy’s Upper School sparks confidence by bolstering executive functioning and building academic success.

A Curriculum That Sparks Their Thinking

We form all classes by aligning our students’ ages and ability levels. This creates an equal opportunity for learning and development that allows all students to shine their brightest. Academically, students will complete a core curriculum of reading, writing, math, science, executive function skills, and a variety of elective offerings.

For those students who plan to continue their education after graduation, Groves Academy offers guidance on taking the ACT and Accuplacer and helps students explore post-secondary options.


A Light on the Horizon for Parents and Students

Empower your student today

Neurodiverse students harness a “superpower” in how they approach the world. With this “superpower” comes challenges. The world at large isn’t built to support how their brains process information. Groves Academy helps students learn, decipher, and understand information on their terms.

Groves Academy illuminates a path to learning that gives your student greater confidence in and out of the classroom. We keep parents/guardians informed with multiple meetings each academic year, so you’re connected to their journey. You’ll see struggles transform into successes as your student’s academic brilliance is given a chance to shine.

“At Groves they don’t just understand my learning disability, they understand my abilities.”
