- 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.

My daughter was going to a public school where she was not doing good neither the school nor the teachers were concerned or did anything to help her. I am so glad I found Center Academy! Now she's happy and making good grades! Thank you Center Academy and thank you Mr Guido for all you do for the school!

The Center Academy experience has been a life-changing for our child. Over the past few years, he has grown tremendously. And we love all the teachers and administrators we have met along the way. Highly recommended!

Our son enjoys going to Center Academy and seems to have a much better attitude than when he went to the local public middle school. Great interaction between faculty and parents. Our son also seems to really enjoy the school in general - teachers, environment, activities.

Such a special place for kids who need that extra attention. My son's academics started to soar right away. He is really getting ready for college and life. Take a tour, you will see the difference right away and the caring of the teachers/staff.

We are new to Center this school year. Very impressed with the school in general academics, opportunities for extracurricular activities and safety. Our student is very happy to attend school each day. He Loves his teachers as well as his classmates. Couldn't ask for a better individualized education. Program.

This is our son's first year here, and he is in the fourth grade. His teacher is very in tune with his needs. After getting lost in the public school system despite years of fabulous teachers, we can rest easy now (easy as we can), that he is in the right place. He has grown academically and has progressed a little socially. This is his toughest area, and the staff is working hard to make his strides worthwhile and meaningful. Overall, the school is skilled in educating and developing students with unique abilities!

Most private schools have endowment funds. We explain how these work and why schools are fortunate to have them in tough times.
COVID-19 has turned education at every level upside-down, inside-out. We offer some steps to guide your planning for academic year 2020-21.
Teachers and parents are concerned about the teaching that will take place post-pandemic. I have tried to cover their concerns in the following set of questions and answers.
