About New Heights

 

Music by Scott Buckley


VISION:
A community dedicated to pioneering a bright future for individuals on the autism spectrum to live independent, confident, and purposeful lives. 

MISSION: Preparing our kids for the community and the community for our kids.

CORE VALUES: 

  • Collaboration
  • Commitment
  • Growth
  • Strong Relationships

We opened our doors in 1999 to 12 students in our preschool and early intervention programs. We started with the simple goal of giving families a safe, friendly community to support their needs and build their family capacity. We expanded into our school programs in 2006.

Motivated by families who believed there could be more for their children, we grew to offer programming that ranges from pre-school to early adulthood. Our goal is, and always has been, to equip each student with the skills they need to engage in and contribute to the community around them. At New Heights, our students develop strong interpersonal relationships so they can live confident and purposeful lives.

We are relentlessly committed to creating a welcoming environment that focuses on the individual needs and goals of each student. Our small class sizes ensure students receive ample time and attention from their teachers, therapists, and peers.

Our school program follows Alberta Education’s Program for Studies, with adaptations as required. New Heights School & Learning Services is fully accredited and approved as a Designated Special Education Private School by Alberta Education.
