Joseph Academy is a school serving the needs of young people with severe behavioral, emotional, and learning disabilities.  Our program strives to give hope to our students to become successful in their learning environment.
Joseph Academy is a Private, Non Profit, Therapeutic Day School that works with Chicago Area school district Special Education representatives who place students in the program.  Local school districts or social service agencies may have criteria regarding who they refer to our school. You may contact your local public school district or Joseph Academy directly to inquire about local criteria. Prior to acceptance an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) must be completed along with a formal interview of the family. If you have further questions regarding your child's potential acceptance into our program, please feel free to contact us.
