NHA Now Accepting Applications for 2024-25

All three New Horizons Academy (NHA) locations are NOW accepting new student applications for the 2024-2025 school year!  NHA is so pleased to announce that it is accepting new student applications for its regional special education PK-12 school campus at 220 Lawrence Ave. in Wauseon, its Greater Toledo Area Campus at 6201 Trust Dr. in Holland—just off of Airport Highway, and its new Career Center and Special Grounds Coffee Shop at 854 S. Shoop Ave. in Wauseon.  Currently, NHA serves special education students from over 25 different school districts from across nine Northwest Ohio counties.  Call TODAY to find out more about NHA and its academic and vocational programs.  Classes begin in August, so begin the enrollment process NOW.

If you are looking for the right special education placement for your preschool to high school student, a place where your child feels like he or she fits in, consider NHA in Wauseon, our Holland or Springfield Township Campus, or through the new Career Center.  At NHA, kids come first. We exist for our students; our students do not exist for the school. Students don’t have to fit into the classes.  The classes and programs are designed to meet the student’s individual needs.  Please visit us today, and see if we are the right fit for your special needs student.
