"Our son rode in the car for an hour saying, 'We celebrated my birthday!' yesterday, and he was super excited! We've celebrated every year, but it never registered like this year. We know your goals are many and education is key but our son connected yesterday. We cannot thank you enough."

“Her teachers offer so much care and compassion.”

Now, he has all his services & therapy at school. This school has been a blessing for him and our family. I would highly recommend ClearWater Academy. The staff & teachers are fabulous and love what they do. This is the school’s first year being open and I see nothing but success & growth in the future.”

“My son has improved dramatically thanks to the expertise of the staff. I have not found another school that offers so many therapies and academics!”
