What We’re About

Many school have become places with no time or space for those who march to the beat of their own drum…We like the music better over here.

Jordan Lake School of the Arts & Creative Center provides the highest quality arts & nature based educational and vocational programs to those with autism and exceptional learning needs. In the right environment the sky is the limit for learning and growing. Doesn’t every child deserve to experience the magic of childhood knowing there is a place and purpose in the world just for them?

Jordan Lake School of the Arts & Creative Center is a one of a kind school and community program located lakeside in Apex, NC. Families relocate from around the country to participate in our unique approach to holistic learning. Addressing a strong core education, a healthy body and mind, and social skills, our students blossom. We provide the best quality services and do so at the lowest possible price point to allow for a greater diversity in our community. We rely on one annual fundraiser to make this possible, and we depend on a broader community to help in recognizing the overwhelming need for a program like ours and respond with support. Together we can make a difference!

“We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.”
