Coastal Georgia Comprehensive Academy​

The Coastal Georgia Comprehensive Academy is a special education school focused on educating students with severe emotional/behavioral disorders, as well as students with moderate to severe autism. We serve students ranging from pre-kindergarten through high school. Our teachers and staff are entrusted with the great responsibility of providing a quality education to our students in a nurturing and therapeutic environment. This vision is built upon a foundation of investment and trust in which students are encouraged and supported to grow both academically and emotionally. By establishing this relationship with our students, we are able to provide them with opportunities to grow and develop. This mindset also prepares our students to overcome the adversities and roadblocks that they will encounter during life. By supporting them through difficult academic and emotional times, students are empowered to face future challenges.
