Exceptional Schools for Exceptional Students

Austin Centers are state certified special education schools for kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) special needs students ranging in age from five to twenty-two. Austin Centers has been established to provide an environment in which the pursuit of instructional effectiveness and learning is valued for students with emotional disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism or pervasive developmental delays, specific learning disabilities, and other educational challenges.


In addition to our rigorous academic and social instruction, we strive to focus our efforts on the post-secondary outcomes of our students with transition-based learning opportunities.

“Austin Centers is a gift for our son! The changed behavior and willingness to at least try, where before never would accept anything may seem like a small thing, but for us it’s HUGE! Thank you to all of you! People like you all are what gives children like this a chance to be successful and impactful in their lives!”
