TAIS Welcomes its newest member school: Concord Academy!

At Concord Academy we value our students’ neurodiversity, help them gain confidence, and guide them to success. Concord offers students a unique learning community within a culture of respect and acceptance. Our small, structured, and secure environment supports learning through traditional academics, social/emotional development, community-based life skills training, and transitioning to life after high school.
