Educating Children with Autism

East Hill Academy is dedicated to students with learning disorders that make it impractical to place them in a regular school setting. It is our purpose to develop these children’s educational and social abilities while improving their self-esteem. Our goal is to help our students reach their maximum potential.

About East Hill Academy

East Hill Academy (EHA) was founded in 2002 in Pensacola, Florida. It is a private non-profit school that was established to meet the educational, emotional and social needs of children diagnosed with Autism and other related learning disabilities grades k-12. EHA has also developed a highly specialized program for our non-conversational students. East Hill Academy provides these educational services in both Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. EHA’s main campus is located at 635 West Garden Street in downtown Pensacola with satellite campuses located at 4401 Avalon Blvd. in Milton, Florida and our newest location at 440 East Hecker Rd., Century, Florida. EHA employs approximately 40 staff members as teachers, teaching assistants, office personnel, accounting, operations manager and director.

The mission of the school is to provide each child with the best individualized education program that will improve their skills and abilities, so they may successfully re-enter mainstream education.
