Bacot Academy is a non-profit, private, Christian based school for children with Autism and other disabilities. Although autism is our specialty, we also welcome students with multiple disabilities. We are fully accredited with the Florida Coalition of Christian and Private Schools Accreditation (FCCPSA), and we provide year-round specialized education based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as well as B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior.

My name is Nick Bacot and I am the reason my mom started Bacot Academy. When I was little I changed schools a lot. I never really fit in and sometimes people would make fun of me. I don’t have to worry about that anymore because here we are all almost the same and never treated bad. We get to take lots of field trips to fun places and I love my teacher. Me and my mom has gotten lots of attention. Sometimes I feel like a celebrity.
We as parents of a six year old son whom has autism, are extremely happy with Bacot Academy. The classroom ratio of teacher to student gives our son and the other students the individual education plan that works best for them. He receives the therapies he needs at school. His teacher has been great with him and with her help. We have seen him communicate more than he ever has. All of the staff makes us feel comfortable and it feels like coming into a family. We hope for continued expansion and success for Bacot Academy. Our appreciation and thankfulness goes out to Bacot Academy’s staff and associated therapist.
