Dear Parents & Guardians,
Thank you for your interest in Lake Pointe Academy. We are so excited as we continue to grow from our first 2 students in January of 2013, to now 30 students! We appreciate the trust and confidence from our first few families and students, while continuing to welcome new faces into our program.
We are grateful for the continued support from our Hood County Community, so many dedicated friends and supporters who have helped make this very unique school a reality! We have many accomplishments in the short time since opening. The most significant may be becoming the only NeuroNet Learning Accredited program in the United States, and were the first to have a Certified NeuroNet Therapist in the State of Texas.
Lake Pointe Academy is a not-for-profit private 'therapeutic school'. Private means we are not affiliated with other organizations. Not-for-profit means any remaining funds after expenses is reserved for the school programs. There are no investors or financial beneficiaries other than the school itself. The school's budget is funded primarily through tuition. Unfortunately, our tuition does not cover all of the costs needed to operate a therapeutic level school. "Therapeutic" means our program incorporates researched and evidence-based programs and strategies to improve or remove barriers to student progress and success. Our program is comprehensive, meaning it addresses the "whole child" - Social, Communication, Emotional Regulation, Academics, and Developmental. Therapeutic schools are hard to find and generally charge anywhere between $16,000 - $40,000 a year in tuition. Our goal is to keep our tuition as affordable as possible. Fundraising is critical and certainly a priority as we continue to press forward striving to provide scholarship assistance to qualifying families. Because our curriculum focus is prescriptive and corrective, our tuition and fees may be deducted as a medical expense when recommended by a physician. Talk to your accountant. We are happy to assist you with further information and documentation as needed.
As a young school, we continue to grow and develop our programs, networks, and Faculty. Lake Pointe Academy is developed by policies and procedures that are consistent with Texas private school accreditation standards, as well as minimum standards as established by national, state and local educational institutions. Lake Pointe Academy is not "owned", but is governed by a Board of Directors, and administered through highly experienced and professionally licensed personnel.

Remaining privately funded is very important so that we can keep our focus on our Mission without the waste of time and funds on "red tape". Our deepest desire is to serve the student and family while individualizing the education and therapeutic plan in line with the student and family goals and interests. We provide an intimate environment where the faculty and staff are committed to helping you develop the understanding and tools you will need to ensure your child's continued success. Our goals include your peace of mind during the day while your child is at school, and challenging your student in developing skills that are needed for life long success. This is determined by the student’s needs, your goals, and outside professional's recommendations when appropriate. We are part of YOUR team!
We are conveniently located at 1921 Acton Hwy, Granbury, Tx, near Big Lots off of 377. Please continue to check in on our website as we periodically update information as we grow. Also, Like us on Facebook to easily follow our progress and events!
From inception, it has always been the mission of Lake Pointe Academy to make your child’s private special education accessible within our community, to support parents and families looking for a unique and exceptionally individualized alternative, so you can have a choice for your child's education. In addition, it is our purpose to provide a high standard of excellence and comprehensive programming in addressing the "Hidden Curriculum" that so many students with social and anxiety difficulties are missing in other environments. We ask for your grace and patience while we continuously strive towards the growth and funding needed for increasing opportunities to provide the school program that we, as parents and practicing professionals, have long envisioned and prayed for.
Again, thank you for your interest. Please contact us to schedule an appointment and tour. We think you'll like what you see! We're currently enrolling for the 2015/16 School Year! Because we maintain a low staff to student ratio, some of our classrooms may already be full. However, we will begin a wait list when necessary. Our current parents are our best references and they'd love to tell you about the difference Lake Pointe Academy has made in their quality of life and student's potential for happiness and success at school. Contact us for more information and a tour! We'd love to get acquainted and learn how we can help you in your journey.
