Baker Academy

Unique school-age programs for special education

For nearly two decades, Baker Academy has met the needs of special education students from school districts across Western New York. We offer structured educational services for students in kindergarten through eighth grade who have serious emotional or behavioral challenges.

Caring and dedicated staff members are trained in the use of Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) designed to provide them with skills, knowledge and confidence in working with children in crisis. We also utilize Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS), a team-based approach to help students increase academic performance by reducing problem behaviors.
