Buehrle Academy

Buehrle Academy is a transitional school for students who have experienced behavioral difficulties adapting to a traditional school environment. As these students have been referred from their home school, it is Buehrle Academy’s mission to ensure that they return to their home school in a timely manner demonstrating marked improvement in behavior, attendance, and academics.

Our service model is designed to increase academic achievement and prepare students for transition back to their home school by implementing a highly structured school culture, which promotes personal accountability and compliance with pro-social behavioral expectations. Once students achieve clearly defined transition goals (i.e., high attendance, good grades, and good behavior), Buehrle Academy will work with home school administrators to restore students to their regular education placement.

To create a challenging, academically rigorous, and safe environment for all students, we utilize the School District of Lancaster’s curriculum as well as our own instructional framework. We combine these with a structured setting and behavioral supports to maximize student academic and social emotional learning.

Additionally, Buehrle Academy offers extracurricular programs such as art and Panther Club, plus outdoor basketball courts for the students to enjoy.

Buehrle Academy also provides our students with academic services, including:

  • College field trips
  • Post-secondary plans
  • Reintegration support with school district building administrators

Our Students
Our students are referred to us through the administrative review or judiciary hearing process by the School District of Lancaster. They are typically assigned for 45 days and when they meet their behavior goals they can transition back to their home school.

Our Staff
We are proud to employ a group of dedicated professionals who work together to provide a safe and rigorous school environment that allows our students to achieve success.
