STEPS Program

The STEPS program at JA is not new; however we have extended our program offerings. STEPS is a multi-faceted program that features comprehensive components and emphasizes the importance of individualized support. We understand that each child has multiple pathways to learning so this program create an environment where each student has the necessary tools to succeed.

We offer small classes of four to six students to focus on the specific learning needs of each child. The STEPS class incorporates all academic subjects into the curriculum, including but not limited to math, writing, reading, science and social studies. Students in the STEPS program have the option of participating in Music, Art and Phys. Ed. classes with their chronological age group.

The full day STEPS program also offers a Social Skills component where students are equipped with the necessary skills to interact with their peers and those around them. The STEPS program believes that friendship is an important facet to child development and we integrate that philosophy into our teaching every day.

In addition to the Senior STEPS class (Grades 4-8) which has both half and full day options, we will offer a half day Primary STEPS class (Grades 1-3) beginning September 2016.





“First and foremost, thank you for the last eight years and the excellent results you have achieved through the Junior Academy Team. Dean’s learning requirements were recognized, assessed, and addressed with great skill in a warm and caring environment. Dean went from a young, disruptive, frustrated child with low self-esteem who hated school, to a fine young man who is out-going, likeable, athletic, confident, enjoys school, and excels academically.” — Parent of a Graduate
