Liberty Point Academy is our fully licensed special education school located on the main residential campus for young men participating in both the secure and community-based residential programs. This educational program helps students improve academic performance during treatment through targeted instruction for seventh through 12th grade.
What makes Liberty Point Academy unique is that our program offers a revolutionary curriculum infused with career exploration and vocational training benchmarks in each course offered. While the youth’s Individualized Education Plan (I.E.P) is closely followed, lesson plans focus on empowering students to learn the skills necessary for independent living and transitioning into the world of work.
Our multidisciplinary team of professionals, including masters prepared, certified teachers, vocational instructors, mental health aides and occupational and speech therapists, helps each student build a lifelong plan that addresses:
Liberty Point Academy delivers curriculum through a variety of teaching methods including a self-paced curriculum which is web-based (Odysseyware), smartboards, a full vocational workshop, greenhouse and large teaching kitchen. Tutors are available as needed.
Liberty Point Academy is licensed by the Virginia Department of Education as a private residential school for students with disabilities and is specifically licensed to serve disability categories of Intellectual Disability, Autism, Emotional Disability, Hearing Impairment, Multiple Disabilities, Other Health Impairment, Specific Learning Disability, Speech or Language Impairment and Visual Impairment.
Liberty Point Academy is also accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Special Education Facilities (VAISEF), whose accreditation process has been approved by the Virginia Council for Private Education (VCPE) as authorized by the Virginia State Board of Education.
To become accredited, Liberty Point must undergo a rigorous accreditation review by a recognized VCPE member association whose Standards of Accreditation and review process have been approved by the VCPE Board. As such an association, VAISEF accredits private special education programs which are regulated by the Virginia Department of Education and provide educational programs and related services to students who need individualized education plans and/or address other conditions which may cause students to be “at risk” in traditional school settings.
Accreditation through a VCPE Approved Accrediting Member guarantees the transfer of student credits from the state recognized accredited private school to a public school and ensures recognition of teacher licensure credits for time served in an accredited private school.
