Park Academy Program Description

Park Academy is a Bergen County public school program operated by Pascack Valley Regional High School District, in collaboration with River Vale Public Schools. Located in River Vale Public Schools, Park Academy is designed for students with educational disabilities in grades 4 through 8, who benefit from a small, quiet, and academically challenging setting with intensive therapeutic supports. Students are referred to Park Academy for assistance with learning, social, behavioral and emotional challenges. Students who attend Park Academy typically demonstrate one or more of the following:

- school avoidance

- a history of hospitalizations

- opposition/defiance

- depression

- anxiety

- poor social skills


- Aspergers Syndrome

Our mission is to provide a safe place where students are assisted in developing executive functioning and coping skills. Students’ academic strengths are maintained and areas of needs addressed. 

Differentiated instruction and proactive clinical interventions create an optimal learning environment for students at Park Academy. Students benefit from a variety of instructional modalities, small class sizes, and a safe, nurturing environment. The administration and staff of Park Academy are committed to providing a program that is therapeutic and student centered while delivering an enriched curriculum. Our program has been developed to model the mainstream school environment and allows for inclusion upon readiness with the goal of returning students to their sending district. Our goal is to enable each student to achieve academic potential and emotional health in a setting within close proximity to his or her community.
