Our Students

Students are referred by their school district to attend High Road Academy and are generally in grades 2–12 (aged 7 to 11). They face disabilities in a variety of areas, including specific learning disability, Autism, other health impairments, multiple disabilities, and more.

Our Staff

We are proud to employ certified special education teachers, staff trained in crisis intervention, reading support, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, and counseling services.

High Road Academy of Prince George’s County is a private separate day program serving the instructional and behavioral needs of students with a wide range of learning disabilities. Because we specialize in this specific population and have garnered decades of experience in expertly meeting the needs and addressing the challenges of learning‐disabled students, our special education program offers the optimal setting to increase each student’s sense of self‐worth and advance their academic development. Our overriding mission is to make each student feel successful in all areas of their lives—in the classroom, at home, and in the community—through academic achievement, improved self‐esteem, and heightened self‐confidence. We therefore concentrate all our efforts and initiatives on creating a strong and supportive learning environment that builds students’ skills and aptitudes and breaks down identified barriers.

By focusing on key areas — academics, behavior modifications, support services, and transition / life planning services — we are able to meet the individual needs of all students through these varied approaches to instruction. Through collaboration with a student’s IEP team, we are able to choose the most appropriate learning model based on a given student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, and ability to learn in a group setting.

Utilizing four specific instructional rotations, students are assessed academically, gain self-regulation skills, learn with district-aligned academic curriculums, and utilize integrated technology.

Learn More About Our Academic Model

Our Transition Program works with elementary/middle school students on career interests and exploration. The program works with our high school students on independent living skills and career/college exploration. Students participate in a variety of experiences such as college tours, technical/vocational school tours, job shadowing experiences, resume building, and interviewing skills. Topics and workshops such as budget management, travel training, career fairs and living independently are conducted throughout the school year. We have also partnered with Prince George’s Community College’s workforce development program for students to earn certifications in computer repair, ServSafe, and childcare.

We have partnered with Joe’s Movement, Panera Bread, Omega Studios, and ViaTech for job shadowing experiences. Our students have gained community service hours through partnerships with the American Red Cross, Alliance Nursing home, and Food with Friends.

Through our partnership with Prince George’s Community College, we offer the Workforce Development Program. We also provide opportunities for students to earn community service hours through agencies the school has partnered (American Red Cross, Nursing Home, Food Banks).
