intermountain-academyIntermountain Centers' Intermountain Academy offers the greater Tucson community a positive teaching environment for youth with specialized needs – a school that builds on each individual child’s strengths and interests. The Academy currently supports children with autism (grades K-12) with a provision of measurable academic achievement following an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) model.

Building on nearly 45 years of experience in providing positive behavioral supports, Intermountain Academy provides:

  • Classroom instruction
  • Transition/integration support between referred students and their home school
  • Opportunities for accelerated curriculum
  • Behavior Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan Development
  • Monitoring Individual Education Programs (IEP) and reporting goal progress back to the home school (if applicable)

The Intermountain Academy Curriculum:

  • Utilizes positive behavioral support
  • Maximizes measurable academic achievement in core subject areas – math, science, language arts, social studies, and the arts
  • Is individually created for each student because of the school’s small student to faculty ratio
  • Offers educational material in graduated sequences
  • Is delivered by faculty well-trained in an empirical behavioral model, utilizing positive behavior support, emphasizing the concepts of programmed learning
  • Includes educational and vocational opportunities in Pima County
  • Supports positive replacement behaviors for anti-social and other behaviors which interfere with learning and forming meaningful and lasting relationships
  • Is a nationally accredited school certified by AdvancED

Intermountain Academy takes a "whole child" approach to developing academic, social, and functional skills while building independence across environments. Partnering with parents and creating a cohesive team around each child is a central feature of our educational design.
