Our Story


Welcome to our vibrant learning village, AMIkids-Caddo! We’re not just a school, we’re a family. We invite students, parents, grandparents, guardians, relatives, friends, and community members to witness the incredible impact we’re making on our kids’ lives. With our dedicated staff and determined students, we’re cultivating leaders and creating a nurturing environment where everyone thrives.

With our dedicated staff and determined students, we’re building a strong community that believes in the power of education. Join us in changing lives and empowering our students to say, “I CAN!”


What We Offer


Community-based programs offer daily services to youth and families, with youth returning home each day if programming takes place outside of the home. We offer eight unique services with our community-based programs.

Alternative Education

Alternative Education programs are designed to help students who require additional support typically not available in traditional schools. Students in attendance benefit from academic remediation, positive behavioral skills development, and individualized attention to succeed. AMIkids Alternative Education programs include Infinity Schools, School-within-a-School, and Charter Schools, which operate according to the school district schedule.


Program Enhancement Services may be provided as standalone or supplementary to a program.

Career and Technical Education

Provided in two age-appropriate models:

  • The AMIkids Career Exploration Model, for ages 14-15, helps youth build self-awareness, learn about potential careers, and develop a plan for reaching future goals.
  • The AMIkids Workforce Development Model, for ages 16-21, utilizes a combination of school-based and work-based learning to help youth learn job readiness skills, earn industry-recognized certifications, and transition to the workforce.
