The mission of Center Academy is to provide students with a learning environment that facilitates the development of self-confidence, motivation, and academic skills, as well as, providing 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.

School Reviews

this school is a great alternative choice of school for kids who dont focus well in a large public school. The kids get lots of personal attention and individualized learning is guaranteed here. it is like home schooling with someone else doing it for you.
