24-Hour Specialized Care

Sometimes each passing moment can be a struggle for children with severe emotional and behavioral challenges, including those struggling with self-injury. That’s why we offer compassionate, supervised care around the clock from our highly trained professionals.



Autism Services

Life can be challenging, yet so rewarding, with a child living and learning on the Autism Spectrum. That’s why Great Circle’s Autism Center for Excellence offers children with autism and their families nationally accredited learning support, respite care and around-the-clock supervision when needed.



Counseling Services

Asking for help takes courage. And at Great Circle, we believe every child and every family deserve access to an individualized counseling experience.



Crisis Services

In times of crisis, Great Circle offers support services and emergency shelter for those facing circumstances beyond their control.

This includes two emergency children’s shelters, a crisis center for women and children fleeing domestic/sexual violence or who are homeless, services to help homeless youth create a stable future, and a Child Advocacy Center that helps child victims of sexual assault and abuse.


Intensive Therapies

We offer specialized outpatient care programs addressing a number of emotional and educational needs.




A Place Where No One Feels Different

At Great Circle, we’re here for the child who feels out of place or struggles in other educational settings because of factors beyond his/her control and who needs a better place to learn.

Your child receives individualized education combined with therapy from a highly trained staff in small class settings. Our schools are approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Illinois Board of Education, and nationally accredited by the prestigious AdvancED and Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS).

At Great Circle, we can help cultivate your child’s excitement to learn and reignite the zeal for life.
