Adaptive Real Life Learning for Children and Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum
Glory Children Academy, Inc. is an Idaho non-profit organization incorporated July 2008 to provide children with autism a non-denominational, faith-based adaptive learning camp through the arts, social and life skills and community when few other options are currently available.
Located in Boise, our goal is to give children with autism the supplemental learning opportunities that go beyond the classroom. Statistics show that only 56% of these children complete high school and academics is just a small piece of the learning puzzle that children with autism need to become productive and independent into adulthood.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our experience has been that when a child feels safe and accepted for who they are and is provided a predictable adaptive learning environment, they far exceed all expectations.
Glory Children Academy’s heart is to meet each child where they are developmentally, and then encourage them into productive growth through a variety of current and innovative methods.
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.”—Benjamin Franklin
Giving children with autism the opportunity to be involved in their community through purposeful work while working alongside others to accomplish a common goal, develops confidence in the individual and brings awareness and acceptance to their cause.
