Our MissionView More ›
Apparo Academy is a non-profit, faith-based, specialized early intervention and education program designed to teach children ages 13 months to 6 years of age in an inclusive and integrated setting.
Apparo means "to make ready" and that is our desire.
We strive to make all children ready for the next stage of life by offering them an individualized education, a range of therapeutic services and full-time nursing care, provided onsite by the Children's Hospital of Georgia's Augusta University nursing staff.
In addition to the children, we are also getting parents, therapists and teachers ready by providing educational opportunities on a variety of topics, including how to navigate the educational and medical systems.
Apparo Academy is excited to announce our expansion, which would not be possible without the amazing, philanthropic community of the CSRA! In August of 2022, we will open our doors to an additional 16,000 square feet. This new facility will allow us to serve more children in our school as we increase from 3 to 10 classrooms. We will also have the opportunity to offer a wider variety of clinic-based therapy services because our current building of 5,000 sq ft will be renovated to serve as the Apparo Academy Therapy Clinic. There are many exciting additions to the property with these renovations and we invite you to come and hear more about it.
Diversity and Inclusion
The practice of inclusion is core to the mission of Apparo Academy. We value and promote diversity at all levels. We celebrate cultural and other differences, and consider them strengths of the organization.
For our staff, we provide an inclusive work environment where everyone is treated with fairness, dignity, and respect. We consider diversity laws, regulations, and policies as a minimum standard in this regard. We recruit and retain a diverse staff reflective of the children we serve.
We recognize and value the diversity of the population we serve. We strive to provide culturally competent and language appropriate care to each child in our school and therapy clinic.
