Excel Academy

This regional program provides a structured setting specifically designed to address the needs of students who require an intensive program to address emotional disabilities or serious behaviors that impede their learning. Students have the support of two onsite King's View Mental Health Clinicians, two behavior specialists, a psychologist and Behavior Intervention Case Managers. The small site allows for supervision and safety while allowing the least restrictive environment. Weekly assemblies provide for student recognition and parental involvement is encouraged. The program hosts two six-week sessions involving parents who want to connect with others about strategies to engage students in positive home and school interactions. A Regional Placement Team meets weekly to review students who are candidates for the program.

Our program provides many opportunities for families to engage in their student's education. Parents are invited to attend field trips, award assemblies, the Thanksgiving Feast and to visit classrooms.


Excel Academy provides a safe and supportive environment where students develop effective academic and behavioral skills. Students are empowered to achieve their full potential through inter-agency partnerships and collaboration with families.

Curriculum & Instruction

Excel Academy provides a differentiated and challenging curriculum to all students in academics and behavioral skills. Our balanced program requires students to demonstrate that they have learned how to learn, and enables them to become productive and effective citizens in the community.


Excel Academy recognizes the importance of strong relationships with parents, districts and inter agency service providers. These collaborative relationships are built on trust, evidence based decision making, open communication and clearly defined expectations that culminate in results that support student success.
