The Grow School services students’ grades kindergarten through twelve in small, structured, therapeutic and academic learning environments, paced to meet the needs of its students on an individual basis. The Grow School program offers a strong academic component, with vocational opportunities for upper grades, designed to accommodate the learning needs of students and to encourage their motivation to achieve. Grow School students learn how to navigate their own learning, and identify a path to achievement.


The program service students from 3 to 22 years of age in self-contained classrooms located within the general education population.  The programs consist of classrooms specializing in a variety of developmental disorders including moderate/intensive special needs as well as mild/moderate behavioral needs.  They are educational day programs providing academics, activities of daily living as well as supplemental therapeutic services.   Many students may also require close medical supervision due to seizures, respiratory issues, GI tubes, etc.  The programs are staffed with a nurse to address medical needs. 


SWCEC provides an opportunity for districts to facilitate an extended evaluation placement for students as a part of the TEAM process. This evaluation placement is our Assessment Program and can be individualized to meet the needs of the student and district for up to eight school weeks. The evaluation placement can occur within either The Grow or Developmental Program. Whether it is data collected in a more structured environment or a full psychological or therapeutic evaluation, we can customize services for your student. More information is available through the referral process.
