STEM School for Autistic Children Opens its Doors in Orange County


The Help Group, the largest, most innovative nonprofit of its kind serving children and young adults with special needs, officially opened its doors to  STEMAcademy and The Learning Center in Irvine.

The school is the only K-12 school in the nation that provides STEM curriculum to students with social and learning differences such as autism or ADHD. The new Irvine campus offers a unique curriculum that is tailored to each student’s individual strengths and needs.

STEMAcademy is the only K-12 school in the nation to provide STEM curriculum to students with social and learning differences while The Learning Center supports both special needs and general education K-12 homeschooled students in academic and non-academic subjects. 

Under the umbrella of The Help Group, STEM³ Academy, with two campuses in Los Angeles, provides students with a high-functioning autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and other social and learning differences the opportunity to maximize their potential. STEMAcademy customizes its approach and curriculum to each student's individual strengths and needs. It offers robust science, technology, engineering, and mathematics courses, as well as opportunities for students to fully explore the humanities. The school also leverages partnerships and mentor programs with leading businesses to offer students real-world interaction and first-hand knowledge of potential career paths.

The Learning Center offers Orange County's K-12 homeschooled students classes that are small enough to tailor instruction to the individual needs and interests of students in order to drive their success and passion. Students are encouraged to take risks in ways that broaden their understanding and develop their confidence through projects, discussions, collaboration, and research.

With deep experience in curriculum design and student instruction, The Learning Center provides creative, rich and diverse experiences, which honor the strengths and support the challenges of its students.
