CAMDEN, N.J. (PRWEB) September 12, 2018
Catapult Learning, a leading provider of special education and instructional intervention solutions, today announced the acquisition of the Leeway School for Educational Therapy in Alhambra, California. The Leeway School will join Catapult Learning’s growing family of special education programs in California and across the country.
Catapult Learning’s special education programs are specifically designed for students classified with learning exceptionalities, such as autism spectrum disorder, and those with emotional and behavioral challenges. With over 60 locations, Catapult Learning is one of the largest providers of special education services nationwide.
“As we expand our services nationwide, we specifically look for partners with a track record of delivering positive student outcomes,” said Jeffrey Cohen, CEO of Catapult Learning. “The Leeway School has demonstrated a unique blend of emotional support and academic success for students with special needs. We will continue Leeway’s tradition of excellence ensuring that all students are able to thrive in and out of the classroom.”
For 40 years, the Leeway School has served the Los Angeles Unified School District and other districts in the nearby San Gabriel Valley. Under Catapult Learning leadership, the special education therapeutic day school will continue educating students with behavioral difficulties and social/emotional issues.
“Local school administrators and families have trusted the Leeway School and its staff to provide a nurturing learning environment for students with special needs,” said Lee Sion, Ph.D., who founded the school in 1978. “We looked for a partner that would carry this tradition forward and we found it in Catapult Learning. I am confident our long legacy of providing a supportive campus will continue with the Catapult Learning team’s support and dedication.”
The addition of the Leeway School marks Catapult Learning’s tenth location in California. Other locations include the Sierra Schools in Sacramento (Sacramento County), Antioch (Contra Costa County), Oroville (Butte County), Elmira (Solano County) and Sebastopol (Sonoma County), as well as Sierra Academy and Springall Academy in San Diego (San Diego County).
Each of Catapult Learning’s special education schools are designed to meet the academic, behavioral, and emotional needs of K–12+ students facing intensive learning, language and social challenges. Implementing its signature academic and language acquisition models that incorporate supportive therapies and life skills training, Catapult Learning emphasizes guiding students to success and optimally preparing them for life beyond the classroom.
