About Pepin Academies

Our Story, Mission & Vision

Executive Director's Message


In 2021, after a 10-month strategic planning review by an independent consulting firm, our boards approved the move to a more unified, cohesive operation. In order to achieve this the Pepin Academies Collaborative Group was formed.

The goal of the Collaborative Group is to utilize a bottoms-up approach in assisting each campus, current and future, in their operation and growth needs to ensure consistency across campuses, while allowing for the creativity and innovation that advances the best service possible for our students. The Collaborative Group strives for a reciprocal relationship with the schools to ensure the Pepin Academies model is implemented with fidelity and is continually advanced and evolved to best serve our population.

Governance Structure Benefits

Together, our governance structure and collaborative decision-making processes ensure that our school remains responsive, accountable, and focused on meeting the evolving needs of our students with learning disabilities. By working together, we can create an educational community where every student thrives, and every voice is valued.
