Partnering with Schools & Districts
All children deserve an education that goes beyond academics and enables them to grow into responsible, self-sufficient adults. Across the country, Catapult Learning has partnered with over 500 schools districts to provide specialized education programming for students who have not found success in the traditional classroom due to a variety of intensive special needs.
In our AdvancED accredited schools, our certified teachers and staff provide individualized academic and behavioral interventions with an innovative learning approach, individualized attention, and all the necessary support services students need to overcome barriers to education. Our flexible models, coupled with behavioral and life skills programming allow us to fully accommodate students with all forms of learning challenges. The goal for all our programs is to improve the learning, living and life potential for our students of all ages.
With 4 locations in Philadelphia, 2 in York, and 1 in Harrisburg, we invite you to see our schools today and learn more about each program.

A Personalized Goal for Nari
Nari was a perfect fit for our program. She took to it right away and has been a model student with very few issues. She even achieved gold-level status, the highest behavioral status a student can reach.
Early on, Nari started exhibiting developmental issues. Jane, her mother, wondered if these delays were due to the instability and emotional challenges Nari had faced and was hopeful that she’d grow out of it. However, as time passed, it became evident that Nari had a learning disability. When she was additionally diagnosed with ADHD and a defiance disorder, Jane felt alone, fearful and confused as to what the future held for Nari.
Jane tried everything in her power to find the resources Nari would need. She looked for subsidizing and financial support, applied for public assistance, joined advocacy groups and enrolled Nari in numerous different public school programs. Even with an IEP, no program proved effective in giving Nari the help she needed to thrive. Lacking in the structure and attentiveness that Nari required, they often led her to act up. When Jane realized Nari needed a more intensive solution, she enrolled her in the High Road Program of Philadelphia.
Serving Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Autism presents differently in every child which is why Catapult Learning believes that there’s no “one size fits all” approach to education. Our goal is to support our students in developing the skills necessary to live the most achievable independent lifestyle which may or may not include independent living, vocational training which leads to employment, and/or transitioning to a more traditional academic classroom setting. Learn more about how our programs can provide the necessary support for students across the autism spectrum.
Two Program Options
Through collaboration with a student’s IEP team, we are able to choose the correct most appropriate learning model based on a given student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, communication development, and ability to learn in a group setting. No matter the educational track, our goal is to produce meaningful and measurable advancements in each student’s behavioral, academic, and social development.
