My oldest son went to Cougar Mountain Academy for 5 years and received an excellent education. It prepared him for middle school where he has continued to excel. We know have our youngest son at the Academy and he too is receiving the same stellar education. It is a very kind and accepting environment where all children feel like an important part of the student body. The teachers are top-notch and the administration develops and executes a well structured curriculum. Not only is the academic platform perfect for the student body but it is very accommodating to a busy working mom's schedule.

Our 3 yr old son has thrived since going to this school. He is challenged, and it amazes me how much he is learning. And he loves the teachers (as do we)!! Definitely recommend.
