About

The Sweet Bay Magnolia Academy is a student centric private school program that provides students and parents with a intensive and individualized educational experience. We are able to meet the needs of individual learners through-

  • Individualized and program wide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) guidance and supervision
  • Intensive Speech Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration 
  • Small Classroom numbers (average class 5 students)
  • Low student to teacher ratio (averaging 3:1)
  • Academic goals created by a team with over 50 years of collective experience
  • Focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM)

The Sweet Bay Magnolia Academy is very lucky to have support of community members that join us weekly for activities like Challenge Island STEAM Challenge with Kelly Martin, Master Pat with Self Defense America, and different local artists (musicians, photographers, sculptors, etc) Scheduled to come to the school and present their artistic passions to students and guide them into exploring the arts themselves.


The program is a parents dream come true! We have two children who attend the center weekly and it is a year round program that is based in ABA therapy. They also cover speech, OT, STEM and so many other options for our children. The team there is professional, loving and dedicated to helping our children reach all their goals and thrive. Our girls run into the center daily with huge smiles on their faces and come home happy and content daily. We are an incredibly grateful family and our girls future is so bright because of this program!
