Yes, there are private schools that accept students with autism and other diverse learning profiles. During the admissions process, it’s critical to have open and transparent conversations with prospective schools about your child’s learning needs to ensure the schools can provide the necessary support services. 

Our Private School Search includes a filter for Learning Differences that may help you find good-fit schools. You may also consider consulting an educational consultant with expertise in working with students with autism who can provide guidance on choosing the right school.
