T.C. Harris Academy

T.C. Harris Academy is designed for students needing a more structured and responsive environment than they are finding in their current school, while still allowing for the student to return home each day. The Academy is a distinct school building for our day students, separated from the T.C. Harris main campus by a short walk.
