Our programs are selected to meet the unique needs of students who want high standards for academics, but need a non-traditional pace and more one-on-one attention.
Infinity Academy offers comprehensive curricula through Acellus Academy a program developed by the International Academy of Sciences. This highly motivating, multi-sensory, award-winning K-12 diploma program is “at your own pace,” therefore allows a great deal of flexibility for students in learning content.
Monday through Thursday, students work on core academics and elective classes. On Fridays, students participate in a social skills focus group, career exploration and explore fitness activities.
SPECIAL SUPPORTS OFFERED
Functional behavioral analysis evaluations will be used to determine each student’s needs for therapies. All students will participate in the following:
Social communication and executive function
Positive behavior support
Individual and/or small and large groups of students to develop self-awareness and social skills.
APPRENTICESHIPS AND TRANSITIONS TO THE WORKFORCE AND HIGHER EDUCATION
Each Friday will be used for personal projects and career exploration. Students will have opportunities to pursue individual interests and will have three levels of “scaffolding” support for entering the workplace and/or college.
Level 1: Students will explore careers during Friday activities. They will also focus on skill acquisition by working in the school.
Level 2: At age 16, and after the director, teachers and mentors at the school site determine a student has marketable skills for working outside of the school in the community, they may work as apprentices/interns for pay. Transportation will be provided by Infinity Academy.
Level 3: Upon graduation, Infinity Academy will assist students in obtaining permanent job placements and/or entrance into college or certification programs.
MUSIC: Students will engage in a very personalized, eclectic art and music program led by the Drury University Center for Music Therapy. Students have the opportunity to participate in individual and group lessons to experiment with various instruments and vocal styles.

Thanks to the generosity of Martial Arts USA - Springfield, Infinity Academy will provide non-competitive Taekwondo once per week at no extra cost, including a uniform. We also have two Explore Fitness Fridays per month in which we participate in a variety of activities such as bowling, rock climbing, hiking and swimming. We take daily walks on the trail near our school and have several indoor activities such as sensory swings, a punching bag, trampoline and Apple fitness apps. High school students are also required to take a health and physical education course through Acellus Academy.
