Cajal Academy is a small special education school in Fairfield County, CT for twice exceptional kids and their bright and gifted peers with an expert multi-disciplinary team.
We offer a whole new approach to education, using modern neuroscientific research to empower kids to optimize their own learning, social & emotional outcomes. Our mastery-based, project-based learning is tailored to develop our very bright students as future thought leaders.
Scientists used to think our abilities were locked in by the end of early childhood. Now they know that your brain constantly rewires itself to do new things right up to the day you die. Shouldn't that drive our approach to education?
We believe we have a moral imperative to use all available science to empower kids, that kids' behaviors are just clues into what problems they need our help to solve, that 2e kids need a chance to take the Ferrari engine under the hood out for a drive to feel happy & whole.
We're looking for passionate, intellectually-curious educators excited to contribute teaching expertise to our team of experts in how children learn, develop & socialize. We seek strong analytical thinkers who want to help redefine education, in an entrepreneurial environment.
