It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I welcome you to Plainfield Academy.   As the Principal, I am honored to be a part of a learning community dedicated to supporting our students to grow academically, emotionally and socially in order to be successful in their next stage of life.  

We proudly strive to ensure that every student’s individual educational needs are met, so that all of our students can learn, grow and succeed.  Our committed team of educators strives to create an inclusive, supportive, and stimulating environment where students feel empowered to explore, learn, and grow.

We are dedicated to providing a supportive environment for student’s academic, behavior and transitional growth to develop independence and success through high individual expectations.  Our aim is to equip students with the tools necessary to excel not only in their academic pursuits but also in their personal and professional lives.  

Collaboration between school, home, and the broader community is integral to our success. We encourage open communication and active participation from parents and guardians to ensure the success and well-being of every student.

As we embark on this educational  journey together, I encourage all our students to dream big, embrace challenges, and strive for excellence. Your potential is limitless, and Plainfield Academy is here to support and guide you every step of the way.

I am thrilled to witness the achievements, growth, and successes of our students throughout this academic year. Together, let us make this year one filled with inspiration, growth, and unforgettable learning experiences.
