Providing Individualized Educational Programs

Ensuring each child reach their potential.


The mission of Fawkes Academy is to provide individualized educational programs for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, other complex developmental disabilities, or different learning needs. Our philosophy is that every child is unique, every child is valued, and every child can learn. We believe that effective teaching and behaviour management, provided by caring individuals, enables each student to be successful and achieve their potential.

The Fawkes Academy operates under the GABA Children’s Society, a non-profit registered charity committed to supporting the provision of intensive applied behaviour analysis (ABA) to educate children and youth with autism spectrum disorders or other complex developmental disabilities.


Fawkes Academy encourages all families to pair academic instruction with therapeutic services that facilitate and support development in the following areas:

  • Communication Skills

  • Social Skills

  • Functional Behavioural Skills

  • Academic Skills

  • Life Skills

  • Physical Literacy Skills
  • Skills for Independence

Fawkes Academy will collaborate with your child’s Speech and Language Therapist (SLP), Occupational Therapist (OT), Kinesiologist, Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA), and other service providers to ensure each Individual Education Plan meets your child’s needs.


Fawkes uses effective, scientifically validated instruction to maximize the development of language and communication, social, academic, and independent living skills.

Our staff includes certified teachers with experience in special education, Board Certified Behaviour Analysts, and interventionists trained in applied behaviour analysis (ABA).

Our mainland campuses provide individualized one to one instruction and supported small group activities that enable our students to generalize learning and engage with peers.

Our distributed learning students receive individualized one to one instruction with programs that have the flexibility to adapt and reprioritize needs. Our distributed learning students are able to pair instructional and therapeutic support with access to community resources that extend the classroom environment.

Each child’s personalized program fosters engagement, motivation, and success. All student programs are guided by the British Columbia Ministry of Education K-12 curriculum, curricular competencies, and core competencies. 

Our teachers collaborate with families to develop an Individual Education Plan that provides the adaptions or modifications that enable each child to engage with courses that meet their learning needs.

Fawkes programs are available in several locations and through distance learning. Each location has something different and unique to offer your family. Connect with us today to find out which program may be best for your child.
