Connecticut Coastal Academy
The Connecticut Coastal Academy is at the forefront of a decades-long movement that recognizes the gifts of people with physical, intellectual, social/emotional and learning differences. Through restorative approaches to education, we nurture solution-oriented young people, who are proud to take meaningful roles in their communities.
Located in Essex, CT, the Connecticut Coastal Academy is a state-approved, private special education program for students in Grade 6 through age 22. Overseen by the CT Department of Education, we provide educational supports and specialized services to at-risk students with disabilities.
