Who we are
Bacot Academy is a non-profit, private, Christian school. Bacot Academy was founded in 2008, being the first and original autism school in this area. We provide year-round specialized education based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as well as, B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior.
We believe that both thinking and teaching outside the box is sometimes necessary for our special children. We feel both blessed and honored to teach our students the way they learn.
We completely agree with the philosophy “Different not Less” (Temple Grandin)
Our mission is to give each student a comprehensive education not otherwise available in our community. We believe that each child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential and become productive members of society.
All Bacot Academy’s staff are trained in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), which serves as the basis for its educational program. ABA has long been considered the most effective and scientifically validated approach for teaching individuals with autism and other disabilities. The program is both evidence-based and innovative, using tried and tested methods to teach students new skills in creative and inventive ways. Our students receive a quality, well-rounded, and functional education that will help them lead productive, meaningful lives with as much independence as possible.
