Where belonging leads to learning
Founded in 1999, Pepin Academies started with 13 students as a foundation to educate students with specific learning disabilities. Our Not-for-profit, tuition-free public charter school educates students between 3rd through 12th grade, in addition to a transitional, job training program for students 18 to 22-years-old.
Today, Pepin Academies serves over 1,200 students and over 850 Graduates, with Hillsborough County campuses in Tampa and Riverview and a campus in New Port Richey, serving students of Pasco County. We provide an uplifting and nurturing environment that maximizes their potential in a positive therapeutic educational environment. For students who qualify, therapy is provided, at no cost, with access to social workers, mental health counselors, occupational therapists, physical therapists, sensory integration, and speech-language programs.
Pepin Academies is a perfect example of how a well-designed educational program, dedicated and innovative teachers, committed parents, and our civic and business communities can work together for the individual needs and opportunities of a child, regardless of the special challenges he or she may face.
Pepin Elementary School, Pepin Academy, and Pepin Transitional School (post-secondary) offer a complete solution for learners of all ages.
