An Individualized Approach

At the Sierra Schools across California, our certified teachers and staff provide individualized academic and behavioral interventions for students who have not found success in the traditional classroom due to a variety of intensive special needs, behavioral issues, or coexisting disabilities. Our students come to us with a variety of special education classifications, including, but not limited to:

Emotional Disability

Other Disabilities

Service Models and Solutions

Sierra Schools and Classrooms serve students from schools districts and charter schools across the state both in our schools or in a separate district run facility. Regardless of location, the proprietary methodology we implement in all locations fulfills all student IEP requirements, creates customized academic and behavior modification plans, provides vocational and transitional services, and delivers related services.

Our Schools

Partnering with public and charter schools across the state to provide our high-caliber special education programs and fulfill individualized student placement need in our own standalone schools.

In-District Classrooms

Developed in partnership with a school, district or charter and delivered within their building or school, we serve students within their home districts, reducing the need for our-of-district placement.

Angel’s Story

Before coming to our school, Angel’s behavior was erratic, destructive and oftentimes violent, putting himself and those around him at risk. After being removed from nearly 10 programs, no one would accept Angel, so his struggles and shortcomings were, unfortunately, not being addressed effectively.

The faculty and staff knew that earning Angel’s trust, fostering positive social interactions and getting him involved in academic activities that resonated with him would ensure his focus and attention and reduced disruptive outbursts. Watch more about Angel’s story and hear from staff, Angel’s teacher, and his mother.

Transition Planning for Life Beyond School through WorkAbility

Sierra Schools helps place students in the job force through a State of California issued WorkAbility 1 Grant. The WorkAbility grant provides comprehensive pre-employment training, employment placement, and follow-up for young adults in special education who are making the transition from school to work, to independent living and/or post-secondary education or training.

Our students earn credit and wages paid by WorkAbility 1 while training at your place of business. In addition to providing our students with an excellent education, we have many partnerships that have agreed to have our students volunteer in order to experience realistic job positions that still meet the needs of our students.
