PGH ABA

PGH ABA is a school program is licensed through the PA Department of Education as a Certified Private Academic School. This school was designed and made in the mind of our learners so that they would be able to access an education inclusive for them. Our goal is to provide families access to a high-quality educational experience that provides research validated, exceptional, multidisciplinary support and services to meet both the child and the families’ needs.

Although inclusion and inclusive educational experiences are something we value for all communities and people groups, we also recognize that for some seasons and circumstances, access to specialized high-quality services may be a priority for some children and families, and inclusion may be a secondary consideration. We recognize this need and want to be able to help families fill the gap.

What makes us different?
