Designed expressly for 3-8th graders with Asperger’s and traits associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder, we are more than a school. We are a home away from home.
All too often, children with Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other learning differences get lost in large traditional school settings and systems not designed to meet their specific learning needs. In these schools, they are left behind—struggling to adapt to rigid academic constraints and the social demands of their peers.
In The Halton School, we’ve created an environment built specifically tailored to the educational needs of 3-8th graders with Asperger’s and traits associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The calming and supportive presence of our highly-trained staff, our park-like campus, and our light-filled classrooms immerse our children in a peaceful environment and fill them with an affirming sense of comfort and belonging. This environment removes barriers keeping students from educational success and in their place, opens up opportunities for these extraordinary children to flourish educationally, socially, and emotionally—inside and outside the classroom.
At The Halton School we combine rigorous academic instruction using curriculum designed to help the challenged learner with evidence-based programs to address social competency. Our small class sizes (8 students or less in each classroom) allow for increased individual attention for every student and provides opportunities for successful peer interactions. We want our students to aspire to their highest potential and share their unique gifts and talents with the communities in which they live.
Created by Aspire Carolinas Foundation and located in Huntersville, NC, The Halton School responds to the limited education options in the Charlotte region for children with average- to above-average intelligence and have Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other specific learning differences.
A peaceful campus, designed to inspire.
Our uniquely park-like campus and beautiful, state-of-the-art school provide an ideal setting for children with Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other learning differences to grow into the people they are meant to be.
