The Midwest's only school solely dedicated to meeting the specific needs of twice-exceptional students.

The 2e world is a rich, complex landscape that includes many exceptionalities. Arete Academy of Exceptional Education will focus on a specific group of students and will consider the following enrollment guidelines:

  • Students entering grades K through 8th and would benefit from a different learning environment.
  • Students entering grades K through 8th and have a diagnosis or educational eligibility of ADHD and/or a learning disability such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, central auditory processing disorder, dyscalculia, etc.
Unfortunately, we are currently not able to support and meet the needs of students with moderate to severe social, emotional, or behavioral issues.

Notice of Non-discriminatory Policy: Arete Academy of Exceptional Education admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Arete Academy of Exceptional Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, or any other school-administered programs.

Upon review of the application, if we feel we can meet your child's needs, we will invite you to meet with our Director and teachers so we can learn more about your family and child and decide if we would like to work together as an educational team. Your child is also welcome to spend a day to meet the teachers and students, and experience our learning environment.

Our goal with respect to admission criteria is to admit students who we feel will have success in our program and we can confidently meet their needs in the areas of enrichment as well as learning challenges.
