Our Mission

The Community School’s mission is to support the developmental and educational growth of adolescents and young adults who are on the autism spectrum or who face other related issues, in a program that emphasizes social-emotional development as an essential foundation for complex logical, high-order thinking.

Recognizing the need for services for the often underserved, high-need community of autistic adolescents and young adults in the Atlanta area, a group of therapists and educators established The Community School (TCS). TCS strives to improve the quality of life for its participants and their families by tapping into each person’s potential to develop relationships, communicate, and problem-solve. Our program provides educational services, mental health counseling, transition support, an independence curriculum, family services and support, and much more.

The Community School has become a pioneer in serving these previously overlooked individuals – garnering nationwide attention and interest after being featured in a New York Times article and on Good Morning America. We aim to produce a replicable model so that similar individuals all over the country can benefit from the knowledge and techniques taught in our programs.
