Our mission at East End Academy is to provide an effective and comprehensive education program, to develop the skills and behaviors of special education and at-risk students enabling them to return to the home school.
Founded in 1996, East End Inc., operates in the city of Newport News and Norfolk, Virginia. Our schools and programs are licensed by the Virginia State Department of Education and/or The Department of Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services and are Medicaid Accredited.
The Staff at the Academy consist of highly trained professionals dedicated to the success of our students' educational goals. We have a mix of educators, clinical workers and support staff to enable us to effectively run our programs and to provide each family with the best care.
