At Great Lakes Academy, we know that children with various Learning Differences, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD or AD/HD can perform as well as others; they just need teachers who know how to reach them. Our curriculum fosters the intellectual, social and emotional growth of students from 3rd through 12th grade.
Great Lakes follows Texas State mandated curriculum, TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) in conjunction with:
