I am thoroughly pleased with the Somers Academy. My son is engaged, thriving and in a community that he can call his own. His teacher is compassionate and academically challenging. His exposure to spanish, science, music, and art has brought his spark for learning back to full speed.

Dedicated teachers that provide differentiated instruction to meet the individual needs of the students is unparalleled. The school is maintained to high expectations and provides age appropriate equipment for students to meet the needs of the 3 year old as well as the 6th grader. The arts are a vital piece of their education and they promote a well balance of rigor appropriate for the different ages. Both my sons have enjoyed their experience so far at Somers Academy!
