School & Education

Devereux’s on-site accredited school offers small class size and access to regular and special education services. In addition, youth can participate in tutoring services as needed. Older youth can participate in career technical education services to explore the world of work and to define their interests and job skills. They have the opportunity to participate in “real life” work settings such as food service, information technology and cosmetology. These work experiences provide an individualized program promoting teamwork, individuality, and the achievement of personal goals. Youth may earn a job readiness certificate that is nationally recognized by employers.

Our school (Devereux Ackerman Academy) is a Title 1 school.

Title I is a federally funded program, which provides services to schools, based on student economic needs. Title I is the largest Federal Assistance Program for our Nation’s schools. The goal is to provide a high quality education for every child, so the program provides extra help to students who need it the most.

Please review the Title I documents listed below and if you have any questions or concerns, please call or email Bettye Freeman @ 770-427-0147 ext. 3109. Our school email address is AckermanAcademy@ad.devereux.org.

I give the school high marks for communicating with me about my child’s progress. Even though I live too far away to visit as often as I would like, I always feel informed and know what is going on.
