  • We have developed an ideal educational program and learning environment to meet the unique needs of our students. Our program is most appropriate for students that exhibit all of the following characteristics:

    • Have differences and difficulties in the areas of socialization, executive functioning, organization, attention, social communication, and pragmatic language. Auburn serves students with challenges in these areas, such as social awkwardness; restricted or unusually intense interests or behavior; atypical speech and language usage; difficulty sustaining conversations or friendships; and trouble successfully interacting in large group settings. This includes, but is not limited to, students with Asperger’s syndrome/ASD.

    • Are bright students with average to above-average cognitive abilities. Our program is designed for students with average to above-average abilities and intellectual potential. Auburn maintains strong academic standards and expects that all of our students will pursue a diploma-track program and college matriculation.

    The Auburn School encourages applications from students of all backgrounds. Only by maintaining a diverse school community can we provide the richest possible learning experience for our students. Our commitment to diversity is consistent with our focus on serving students with diverse learning styles. 

    The Auburn School applies all policies and procedures, including admissions, equally to all students and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.

  • Our daughter has definitely benefited from attending Auburn. She is making strides socially, creatively, and academically. The faculty is amazing - a good balance of caring, fostering independence in an appropriate manner, and they are consistent with the behaviors of the children. She is very happy at Auburn.”
