Our mission is to empower students with learning disabilities to maximize their potential in a positive therapeutic educational environment.
Public Charter, Tuition Free Learning Disabilities Schools
Established in 1999, Pepin Academies are 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit, tuition-free, public charter schools that serve students with specific learning and learning-related disabilities. We educate students in 3rd through 12th grade and also offer a transitional, job training program for students 18 to 22 years old. Pepin Academies are considered ESE Center schools. We feature a nurturing environment that focuses on improving the academic and social success of students. All students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and educational opportunities such as athletics, performing arts, clubs and career and technical education.
Pepin Academies Campus Locations
Today, Pepin Academies has grown to serve over 1,200 students, with Hillsborough County campuses in Tampa and Riverview and a campus in New Port Richey, which serves the students in Pasco County.
What is the future plan?
Some students have a plan to go to college after high school and others may want to obtain employment. Some may be unsure of what their next steps will be. Our Transition Program can support students that may need just a little bit more time and experience on whatever path they take.
Pepin Academies Transition Program
Pepin Academies also offers a Transition Program that is a comprehensive individualized program of vocationally-based training in conjunction with life and job readiness courses, designed for young adults ages 18 to 22 who have an identified learning or learning-related disability. The program offers on-site career training through community partnerships.
