The RSEC Academy Middle and High Schools Receive Approval to Serve Massachusetts School Districts

RSEC Massachusetts Students

Regional Services and Education Center, Inc. (RSEC) has received approval from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to accept special education placements for Massachusetts students at The RSEC Academy Middle School and The RSEC Academy High School. The approval creates additional options for schools that are looking for alternative educational opportunities for students with unique needs in settings designed to best serve them.

Located in Amherst, New Hampshire and under 10 miles from the Massachusetts border, The RSEC Academy has been serving students in grades 5-12 for more than 23 years with programming that is designed to develop individual learners with strong literary skills through individualized curriculums that help students overcome learning challenges. The new agreement makes it possible for RSEC to enter into contracts with Massachusetts school districts to accept students from the state.

“Given our proximity to Massachusetts and the specialized services we provide, we believe we can offer additional options to school districts, families, students and advocates who are looking for educational options that align with specific learning needs,” said Janet Reed, director of The RSEC Academy. “We are very pleased to receive this approval from the Massachusetts Department of Education and look forward to connecting with the school districts in the region to make them aware of these additional options.”

The RSEC Academy Middle School focuses on developing core academic and transition skills that form the foundation for future learning and self-advocacy. They are uniquely tailored to serve students with learning disabilities, ADHD, social skills deficits, autism, speech or language impairment, deaf or hard of hearing, social anxiety and those who require language support services.

The RSEC Academy High School is an approved diploma-granting day program that helps students gain a better understanding of their learning challenges and the communications skills they need to return to their school district, pursue post-secondary education, or start a career when they leave. The teaching focus of this school is evidence-based instruction and the results are reflected in the high graduation rate.

The new agreement with Massachusetts school districts is effective immediately and initially lasts for three years. The RSEC Academy Middle School and The RSEC Academy High School are only able to accept students that are referred directly by their school district. For more information, contact (603) 673-6656 or academy@rsec.org.
