Foster Academy is celebrating it's second year with a grand opening, which included the students.

The school in Huntsville provides education for only students diagnosed with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome and other learning disabilities. 

Foster Academy was first founded in 2017 as a mission of University Baptist Church and school leaders hope to see continued growth in the future.

" And because we are so new, a lot of people still don't know about us. And we just really want everyone to know, especially if they have a child that might be a fit for our school," said Diane Leisher, Foster Academy Director. 

This year, the school has around 18 students in 5th through 12th grades.

There is an application and interview process for possible students. 

School leaders encourage families who might be interested to call the school at 256-945-0664.
