Individualized Academic Support

Students benefit from a collaborative team that meets with the family at least once a year to assess the student’s progress and formulate educational, therapeutic, career, and life goals. With functional independence as the ultimate objective, goals are tailored to each child’s strengths and personal needs. These meetings result in an Individualized Service Plan or ISP.

Guardianship Assistance

Some of our students will continue to need support making decisions about their personal or financial affairs after they become legal adults. As your child approaches the age of 18, we will begin to discuss whether they would benefit from a court-appointed guardian. If your family believes a guardianship is appropriate for your child, our staff can explain the application process and assist with necessary paperwork.

Scholarship Assistance

The application and renewal process for Step Up scholarships can be confusing and frustrating. Our experienced office staff are always available to answer questions and help navigate the scholarship websites.


Life Skills Academy owns two 15 passenger transit vans and a wheelchair accessible minivan. We provide limited transportation between designated “stops” and both campuses. There is an additional fee for this service, not covered by tuition.

Free Breakfast and Hot Lunch for All Students

Life Skills Academy provides free breakfast and free hot lunch to all students through the National School Lunch Program’s (NSLP) “Community Eligibility Provision” (CEP). These meals meet all NSLP nutrition requirements.

Free Tutoring Through Polk Count’s Title 1 Grant Program

Eligible students may receive 30 minutes twice per week of intensive reading instruction to supplement their classroom ELA instruction.

Collaboration with and Referral to Outside Services Providers

Life Skills Academy is proud to welcome other members of the community who need to provide services to our students. In the past, we have worked with professionals such as mental health counselors and behavior analysts.
