Bachman Academy



Bachman Academy is a school for students who are diagnosed with learning differences. We educate boarding and day students in 6th-12th grade who are diagnosed with ADHD, Dyslexia, Aspergers Syndrome and other Non-verbal learning differences. The academy’s mission is to empower students to develop the skills and values necessary for success in a global society.

At Bachman Academy our curriculum includes a researched based, multi-sensory approach that is highly individualized and provides middle and high school students the opportunities to learn in a nurturing and safe environment. Ninety per cent of our students transition to two and four year colleges. In addition, we incorporate assistive technology along with a success skills curriculum, which covers personal finance, social etiquette, completing job applications, interview skills, personal appearance, self-advocacy, and preparing for independent living.


Our career-education program is unique among the majority of boarding specialty schools. The programs are built on outcome-based learning. Career-education elective track includes, Equine Studies, Mechanics, Woodworking and Horticulture/Agriculture.


Being fully aware of our students learning needs, our teachers’ styles and methods are geared to teach the way each student learns best. The Academy boasts a 5:1 student to faculty ratio, and a 1:1 student to staff ratio. The 188-acre campus is the ideal backdrop for an environmentally- friendly focused school for average to above average students who struggle to learn in a traditional educational environment.

    This sounds like a very great place to send young people to help them learn a lot of new things and become prepared for College. Equine studies would be very interesting to study.

    Now, I wish I had known about this place when my child was in school. This is EXACTLY what she needed – learning geared to the way each student learns best. Too late now for her! Hopefully other parents will take advantage of Bachman Academy – I am impressed that 90% of their students go on to college! The figures show their success.
