School Reviews

I have been so impressed with Fort Worth Academy! My son is currently in kindergarten and is excited to go to school every day. The staff and teachers exemplify passion and love in everything they do, and the small class sizes allow them to spend more time with individual students. My son has blossomed in this environment and my family feels so thankful to have found such an amazing school.

Our two children attend Fort Worth Academy and are thriving at this incredible school. We moved to the area recently and were looking for a school with small class sizes, individual learning to help them reach their potential, all in a nurturing positive environment that would build a love of learning. Tall order, right? My husband and I believe wholehearted that we found just that here. We had a lot of options in private schools to choose from but there is truly something special about Fort Worth Academy. The staff members are passionate about providing the best education possible and it shows in everything they do. Maybe the most telling thing to us that Fort Worth Academy is the right fit, is how much our kids LOVE school. They can hardly wait to get out of the car each morning to start their day and are excited to tell me what they learned each afternoon. As a parent, it doesn?'t get much better than that!
