Center Academy - Maitland
5.00 (6 reviews)
- 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.

CA-M is the best school! Teaching and administrative staff are very professional. They really care about students succes, individually and in group as a community. For the first time my children are so happy going to school and that's all for me. I immediately saw a huge progress. It's been an extraordinary experience!! We are blessed!!

I have no words to describe how Center Academy has been a blessing to my children and our family. The entire staff is amazing. My kiddos loves going to school! Thank you, Ms. Sas, and school staff for caring about my children and for providing an excellent education! Thank you for treating us like family, for teaching my children to become leaders in the near future. We love your Center Academy Maitland, Mrs. Rios.

We have really been happy at Center Academy! After a rough start at another school in 2018, we came here mid-year and immediately saw a difference! Since then, our son has really thrived and gets the support he needs. He actually likes going to school for the first time in years! The administration is caring and always available to answer questions or address concerns. Their ability to challenge each kid without overwhelming them is amazing!

My son has been attending Center Academy for 3 years. My heart broke when my elementary age son hated going to his previous school, grades were dropping and his overall self-esteem. Just over a few months I saw a HUGE difference in him. He actually wants to be at school 30 minutes early now. He has great friends and makes A's and B's. I can't describe in words how much mental stress this has saved me as a mother. I truly consider this school to be like family.

I have found Center Academy to be the best school for providing an individual educational plan for students with learning differences. They truly customize a program for each subject based on your child's needs. The principal and teachers are extremely professional, kind and compassionate towards students and parents. My son is treated with respect, held accountable for his progress, works independently while getting all the individual support he needs to succeed. His progress in just two years at C.A. has been amazing. We are very excited about the new Maitland facility next year with its indoor gymnasium and lunch room. The kids are gonna love it!

My daughter has CAPD and Dyslexia. CA not only designed a individualized curriculum for her, but helped her make up a grade level lost in the public school system. With teachers that really care about their students success, one on one guidence, small class sizes, individual cubbies for each student, and an administrative staff dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential... I can think of no other school for my daughter.

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.
