Welcome

triciaVictory Academy is a private, registered non-profit school, accredited through the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), an accreditation division of AdvancEd, and approved by Oregon Department of Education (ODE). Victory serves children with unique learning differences, focusing on students (currently grades K-8) impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorders; it is the first school of its kind in the greater Portland-metro area to offer a comprehensive educational and therapeutic program. Specifically, Victory provides students with an individualized academic plan, integrating proven, research-based therapeutic strategies into every learning task.

The school is unique from the public school settings, as Victory offers year-round school at 7.5 hours per day, low student to teacher ratio (7:3), and additional therapies (occupational therapy, speech and language, music, art, behavior, social skills, daily living practice, and peer buddies). Currently, there is no model like this in Oregon.

Victory Academy believes that all students affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders can reach their fullest potential through an education based in both structure and playful engagement. Each child's particular strengths and challenges are constantly assessed to direct the child's teachers in selecting best practice teaching methodologies for the individual child. Moreover, Victory Academy maintains that all students learn with greater ease when their natural interests and affinities are honored throughout the school day.
