HFI Specialized Learning School

HFI Specialized Learning School is a licensed, private academic school for elementary and secondary students. We are dedicated to helping students overcome the unique academic and behavioral issues affecting them in a regular classroom so that they can successfully return to their home school district.

Happiness and self-esteem are closely tied to success in academics. Our program is specially designed to meet the individual needs of students whose behaviors have impeded their academic and social progress.

At our school, students are provided with the educational resources and therapeutic environment they need to return to their home school district or regular classroom, as well as the preparation needed to obtain secure employment after graduation. For our students to improve, we focus on providing a safe, non-violent, trauma-informed environment through our certified Sanctuary Model of Care.® In addition, we follow a School-wide Positive Behavior Support Program to ensure a predictable and safe school environment.

Technology is integrated into every classroom and all students are provided with Chromebook laptops to use for their studies. Our curriculum is aligned with the state. Adapted physical education, art, library, and music classes are taught by teachers certified in those subject areas. All students receive a healthy breakfast, lunch, and a school snack provided through The National School Lunch and School Breakfast Community Eligibility Provision. Please note that all extras & a la carte are NOT part of the CEP and must be paid for separately.

Nutritious free meals are also available to children and teens at many locations in the community while school is out of session. Families can use any of the following methods to locate sites that serve free meals to children during the summer:
