Help this non profit fully inclusive school support children with special needs.

Oak Creek Academy is an Amazing School!

This non-profit, fully inclusive K-12 school believes that every child deserves a high-quality learning program that

  • addresses the social-emotional, language, cognitive, and physical aspects of a child’s development
  • improves the lives of children with special needs, behavior challenges, or struggles not addressed by the public-school system
  • provides year-round schooling in the greater Killeen, Texas area

These goals are achieved by

  • partnering with in-house clinical/medical-based speech, physical, occupational, and ABA therapies in the educational setting
  • implementing effective teaching strategies to fit the individual student

The private therapy provided to children

  • is integrated into the classroom and the therapist work directly or indirectly with the teacher
  • prevents wasting precious instructional time traveling to appointments

This fully accredited school is the only one of its kind in Central Texas. Of the 83 students attending the school

  • over 92% have some form of special needs
  • more than 77% of the children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Dr Tracy Hanson is the Principal and

  • after 20 years in the field of childhood education, realized that a school focused on individual learning was needed
  • in 2013 opened and founded Oak Creek Academy
  • has always been a huge proponent of inclusion and feels that every student learns in his/her own unique way
  • believes our school gives students the opportunity to grow academically at their level of learning
  • believes students able to work above their grade level, should be challenged and have the freedom to do so

" ...believes if a student is working below grade level, they should have the opportunity to grow academically from that point. Too often traditional school settings try to put a square peg into the round hole. At Oak Creek Academy, we understand that every child is unique and learns differently!"

Our school is a 501(c)(3) school

  • that is fully funded by parents and donations from the community and
  • that does not receive government funding
  • that is in dire need of monetary support

In an effort to ensure our students have every academic advantage necessary to excel as productive members of the Killeen/Harker Heights community and, perhaps most importantly, society at large, we are reaching out to each person in hopes that you will join us in our Mission.
