Dominion Academy is a therapeutic, private day school that provides a structured educational setting for special education students in need of behavioral support. The school is licensed by the Virginia Department of Education and accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Special Education Facilities for students ages 5 – 22.
The children we serve receive continuous supervision and personalized academic, physical, emotional, and behavioral support throughout the school day. Our teachers, teacher assistants, and behavioral and clinical staff work closely with their students to help them achieve our four pillars of success:
Families can be assured their children will receive the individualized attention they need. The maximum student enrollment is 10 students per class. Each classroom is staffed by a full time teacher and full time teacher assistant. The overall staff to student ratio is 1:3.
At Dominion Academy, we believe that students will modify their own behavior when the focus of teachers and staff is on what the student does correctly, instead of on what the student does not do well. Through a specific system of positive reinforcement, students are reinforced and rewarded when they exhibit positive behavioral choices consistent with Dominion Academy’s F.I.R.E. guidelines.
The ultimate goal for all students at Dominion Academy is to learn the skills and develop the tools necessary for a successful return to their local public school. This is accomplished through a collaborative effort among staff, school representatives, parents and guardians, and related service providers.
