ELEVATE Student Support Services

Each student shows up, learns, and navigates through the world differently.  Every student is capable of growth.

ELEVATE provides coaching, intervention, and professional development to support our teachers, parents, and students in achieving their full potential along the academic and social emotional continuum.

We operate on the fundamental belief that through an intentional, student-centered, strength based approach, we can create a paradigm shift in the way we support and empower each and every learner within our community.

Aspen Academy’s ELEVATE program takes a three-tiered approach. By doing so, we honor, cultivate, and celebrate strengths in all learners. Services include:

Aspen Academy is committed to the expansion of services to enrich all learners in our community:

  • Providing Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity screenings
  • Offering Speech, Occupational Therapy, and Hearing screenings
  • Onsite Tutoring Available Student (Additional fee required)
  • Expanded Enrichment services
