School History:

Atlantis Academy was established in Miami in 1976 as an innovative school for students who needed a personalized program that included individualized attention and specialized instruction. We emphasize the importance of parent/teacher/student relationships and form close relationships with our families so parents can be active participants in developing an educational program to achieve their child's individual goals.

Today, Atlantis Academy includes three campuses, kindergarten through 12th grade (through age 22), in Coral Springs, Miami, and West Palm Beach. We also operate the Atlantis Academy L.I.F.E. Program, an adult transition program, in Miami and Coral Springs. Every day, we educate more than 500 students who have unique learning needs and help them develop the education and life skills to reach their full potential academically, socially and behaviorally.

In 2001, Atlantis Academy was acquired by ChanceLight Behavioral Health, Therapy and Education.

The mission of Atlantis Academy is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to enhance our students' academic, social and emotional growth and to foster a sense of self-worth and self-confidence.

Notes/School Information:

Atlantis Academy provides a comprehensive education program for students in grades kindergarten through 12 and above (to age 22) tailored to meet the unique learning needs of each student. Additionally, our L.I.F.E. Programs in Coral Springs OR Miami are designed to support young adults with varying abilities over the age of 18 by providing them the skills needed to live a more independent life at home and in the workplace.

Each student follows a personalized academic program that aligns with state standards. Upon enrollment, students complete a comprehensive assessment and monitoring plan to identify the appropriate levels of instruction and intervention required for their unique needs. Students are reassessed two to three times during the school year to measure progress and to guide decisions about what's best for each student.

Using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, we work with each student as necessary to reduce behaviors that may inhibit learning and develop the appropriate behaviors to help students achieve success in the classroom.
