When Leonard’s new umbrella academy opens in South Boston
Leonard’s umbrella academy opened its doors in South Cambridge, Massachusetts on Friday, bringing with it a new crop of new instructors and instructors of all ages.
The umbrella academy is the latest project of Leonard’s Academy for Children, a nonprofit organization that was established in 2014 to provide specialized instruction to children with disabilities, including those with special needs.
According to Leonard’s spokesperson, the umbrella academy offers more than 70 classes per year for children with developmental disabilities, developmental delays, and other special needs that span from preschool through high school.
“As a nonprofit, Leonard’s academy does not accept any government funding,” the spokesperson told Boston.com.
Leonard’s umbrella school has a total of 13 students.
As part of the umbrella school’s “Advancement Academy,” students can attend classes in a variety of settings, from physical therapy to physical education to classroom instruction.
At the Academy for Kids, students can also participate in other classes such as physical therapy, dance, and dance and fitness, among other things.
In addition to the academy’s academy, Leonard has also opened its first training center in South Bay, which will offer training on all aspects of the life of a child with a disability.
Students at the academy also have the option to take classes at a number of other facilities across the country, including the Boston Children’s Hospital, where they can attend in-person training sessions.
Some of the other facilities in the umbrella program include the Boston Community Center and the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
The umbrella school, which is located in Cambridge, will open at the corner of Cambridge Street and North Street in 2018.
While Leonard’s is the first umbrella academy in the United States, other umbrella schools have opened in other cities, including San Diego, California, and Dallas, Texas.
