Alternative Day School

Aurora Plains Academy

While your child is a resident at the Academy, they will attend the Aurora Plains Academy School, which is adjacent to their living cottages/units. The school is staffed with faculty members all certified in their areas of specialization by the South Dakota Department of Education. Your child is placed in a classroom according to their social, emotional, and educational needs. Classrooms range in size from eight to ten residents. Special intervention is also available to assist your child in developing behaviors necessary to be successful in school. In addition to the 9 month school year, an 8 week summer school is also provided.
