Leah’s mom can tell, “Their staff is like a family,” said Whitnee. Besides doing their jobs, the staff does something else for special needs families, according to Whitnee. “Mostly what we need, families like ours, is uplifting voices of support and inclusion, and that’s exactly what you get from Achievement Academy.” Whitnee likes that the classroom is run like any other classroom, where students are challenged and given responsibilities as well as love and support. “These kids are really resilient. They have the potential, and society kind of writes them off. Achievement Academy is where they find that encouragement. That’s where the journey begins.” To learn more about Achievement Academy, to donate, or to apply to be placed on the waiting list, visit achievementacademy. com or call (863) 683-6504.
