Who Do We Serve?

The Novus Academy is a school for students in grades K-12 with learning disabilities or differences, and/or other types of challenging barriers to success, such as bullying or "giftedness".  The Novus Academy accepts students who are struggling in traditional classrooms because their reading, writing, mathematics, and/or organizational skills may be below their cognitive potential; they are overwhelmed by the demands of tasks, class sizes, and peer interactions; they learn or think differently than instructed in a typical setting; and/or they are not receiving the support they need in much larger schools and classrooms.
