Pathway to Independence 



When we began Maitland Academy, in 2007, my son was 8 years old.  As we transitioned in 2013 to Celandine Life Prep Academy, Inc, now a non-profit, Christian school, our programs evolved with my son and our other students to meet their ever-changing needs. We expanded our programs in 2016 so that our students that would not be able to receive a traditional diploma could continue to work on the academic skills necessary to take the GED while receiving additional support in all areas necessary for a successful, more independent future.  For our students ready for the workforce, we provide, on campus, training. .
