About Us

Joseph Academy is a school serving the needs of young people with severe behavioral, emotional, and learning disabilities. Our program strives to give hope to our students to become successful in their learning environment.

Joseph Academy provides an environment that is both nurturing and challenging.  We seek to build students’ self-esteem and productivity through a therapeutic program in which staff members constantly express respect and affection for them.

"We are regarded as the 'go-to' school by Lake, Cook and DuPage Counties.  We are the specialist.”
