What Makes Us Unique
Pepin Academies are full-time ESE day schools in the State of Florida that offer a standard diploma option for students with learning and learning-related disabilities in grades 3-12.
Pepin Academies follows a modified calendar starting school in late July. Students have the same number of school days, but have a shorter summer break with more breaks throughout the school year.
At Pepin Academies, the approach is about the whole child. Pepin Academies are an example of how a well-designed educational program, dedicated and innovative teachers, committed parents and our civic and business communities can work together to provide for the individual needs and opportunity of a child, regardless of the special challenges he or she may face.
We offer a nurturing atmosphere that focuses on improving academics and social achievement. For students who qualify, therapy is provided, at no cost, with access to social workers, mental health counselors, occupational therapists, physical therapists, sensory integration, and speech language programs.
We provide individualized instruction for each student and utilize continuous and authentic assessments. The curriculum is diversified and driven by the needs of the students. All students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and educational opportunities such as athletics, performing arts, clubs and career and technical education. These are opportunities that they may not otherwise have at a traditional school setting. Our mission is to empower students with learning disabilities to maximize their potential in a positive therapeutic educational environment.
