Altus Academy is dedicated to helping troubled kids by providing the highest quality education, treatment, guidance and encouragement for "at-risk" children and adolescents. We are committed to the development of our students, their needs, desires and success as individuals. We promote responsible decision making skills and teach our kids to be accountable for their behavior. Our goal for each child is to to build a strong educational foundation by providing the right program in the least restrictive environment for the shortest period of time.

Altus provides a setting designed to accommodate the educational, behavioral, and/or medical needs of children and adolescents that cannot be adequately addressed in a traditional school environment. With over 30 years experience we were one of the first programs to combine therapy, experiential learning, academics and behavior modification to help troubled kids. Altus has earned a national reputation as a leader in the education and treatment of "at-risk" youth. Our specialized programs for severely disabled, developmentally delayed and emotionally disturbed students have high adult-to-student ratios and offer individualized instruction.

Working in partnership with Southern California school districts and SELPAs, our comprehensive academic, vocational, and transitional programs have enabled student success. We provide hope for kids, the utmost support for our employees, and exceptional service for our referral sources.
