UPWARD EXPERIENCES EXPLOSIVE GROWTH OVER THE PAST YEAR! < Return to News

At the conclusion of the Campus Expansion Project in 2016 UPWARD set its sights on growing into the expanded 26,000 square foot campus. “I am pleased to report growth in nearly all program areas,” said CEO Doug Carter.

We opened the 2019-20 school year with a 25% increase in enrollment in our Private Day School serving children with special needs.  We also more than doubled the number of children in our integrated Childcare Program by adding two classrooms.

Prior to the Campus Expansion Project our Day Program for adults (DTA) was at capacity.  We opened a second classroom and are now operating both rooms at 85% capacity.

Finally, we continue to provide quality therapeutic services to many low-income children through our Outpatient Pediatric Therapy Clinic.  “We are very excited that we are able to meet the critical needs for so many children with special needs,” said Sharon Graham, Vice President of Programs.  “UPWARD’s mission is to bring hope and joy to the children we serve.”
