Manus Academy provides a rigorous and accredited academic program that is aligned with state and national standards. We follow a measurable, four-step process to ensure we deliver to each student the instruction he or she needs.
The steps of the Manus Academic Process (MAP) are:
Determine the student’s current achievement in the various skills.
Determine the reasons for the student’s skill delays, if any.
Develop then deliver the student’s customized instructional plan.
Measure and report progress and adjust the plan as needed.
Students in our elementary and middle school receive a combination of: skill-building instruction; coursework in science, social studies, English and math; coaching in organizational skills; and classes in physical education, art and applied learning. Students work one-to-one with teachers and teaching assistants, in groups of one to two other students and with their entire class of six students.
High school students take the standard courses in English, science, social studies and math and receive coaching in time management, organizational and study skills. We also create certain skill-building courses for students to take as electives, when needed.
