  • The mission of Center Academy is to provide students with a learning environment that facilitates the development of self-confidence, motivation, and academic skills, and gives students the opportunity to achieve success in life.
  • It is often difficult for a child to maintain self-esteem when his/her learning requirements differ from other students in school.
  • Therefore, we offer a highly structured educational program in an atmosphere that is familiar, understanding, nurturing, and supportive.
  • Center Academy helps students with average to above average intelligence who "fall through the cracks" in school, or who need special help with organization, motivation, and/or social skills.
