About Us


Solterra Academy is approved as a special education facility of the State of Connecticut.


Solterra Academy provides comprehensive special education for students ages 5 to 21 who require intensive intervention due to severe emotional, behavioral, cognitive, developmental and/or learning challenges. The school is designed to provide a high level of structure and support, as well as an integrated array of services to address each child’s unique profile.

At Solterra Academy, family involvement and support is a priority. Counseling, parent education, and 24-hour crisis intervention services are provided.

Our many services and resources include, but are not limited to:

  • Individualized clinical services for each student

  • Individualized resource instruction in reading

  • Diagnostic educational evaluation

  • Intellectual/cognitive testing

  • Speech/language evaluation and therapy

  • Occupational/physical therapy evaluation and treatment

  • Vocational education, including community job shadowing

  • Individual transition planning 

  • Integrated use of technology within the curriculum, including SMART Boards and Apple iPads

  • School consultation and community training

  • Music and art programs

  • Extra-curricular activities and family events

The goal of Solterra Academy is to foster independence in all aspects of the students’ development so they may be successfully transitioned back to their home school district. We believe that children can realize their potential, given an environment that is supportive, developmentally appropriate and geared to specific individual needs. We are dedicated to the development of a sense of cooperation, self-motivation, adjustment and academic accomplishment for each child.

Solterra Academy is approved as a special education facility by the Connecticut State Department of Education.
