We operate classroom-based Charter Schools in Columbus/Dublin, Lancaster, Athens, and Sandusky, Ohio. We also operate home-based programs throughout the state. Haugland accepts students from preschool through twelfth grade (including those with behaviors of concern) and is therefore an excellent alternative to public school.
All students with an Autism, Asperger's, or PDD-NOS diagnosis are eligible to receive the Autism Scholarship from the Ohio Department of Education, which can be used to pay for educational services at Haugland.
Students with other disabilities may qualify for the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship, which can also be used to pay for services at Haugland.
Additionally, students with any learning disability are eligible for placement at Haugland by their home school district via direct contract.
Educational costs at Haugland are mostly covered by the Autism Scholarship, Jon Peterson Scholarship, or directly by school districts, making Haugland a quality program that all parents can afford.
Parents can relax, knowing that their child is educated in a safe environment and that their workday will NOT be interrupted by calls to pick up their child for incidents that happen at school.
At Haugland, each student’s academic program is designed to maximize their academic success. We build the skills back into every student to help them leap ahead academically!
Students feel welcomed and accepted at Haugland instead of being singled out because of idiosyncrasies. Many develop friendships for the first time and participate in social activities outside of school.
At Haugland, students are instructed to self-monitor and self-regulate when experiencing behavior challenges. We teach how to communicate needs so that emotional meltdowns are minimized.
Our academic and behavior specialists work with families to develop effective educational and behavioral plans to strengthen both the home environment as well as continue the educational process.
