We are extremely glad we found Center Academy Prep of Coral Springs. We homeschooled our son for many years because of mild learning difficulties. We were very cautious about where to place him. The faculty and staff are very caring and concerned. Our son is moving at a pace that is challenging but manageable for him. We are pleased with the small class size and the individual care our son receives. This is our first year with CAP and the registration process was not difficult at all. It's a terrific school and I highly recommend them, especially if your child doesn't fit into the academic "box" in the public school setting.

Center Academy is the best school my son ever attended! He used to say that he hated school before, but on his first week at CA he came home very excited that he was finally learning. That helped his self steem and gave us hope. He's now a senior, and oddly enough, I feel sad, that he's finishing High School, mixing feelings, because he's not going to get the same understanding, help, caring and attention that's used to. Mr. Nelson is a great teacher, actually all teachers are terrific, I never had any doubts about their skills, but Mr. Nelson is "the man". Mrs. Cooper also made such a difference, it was great already before her, but her energy, focus and idealism pumped up the whole structure. I can stay here all day praising the wonderful job this school has done in my son's and our lives...but I don't think anybody will read everything anyway...lol...do your homework, and go check this school out! Way to go Center Academy! thanks for all the hard work!

My son was struggling in public school so I was desperate to find an alternative learning environment for him. Miraculously, Center Academy is only a mile from my home. From the first visit, I could sense the difference in the level of concern and caring for the children and their education. This is my son's second year at Center Academy and I am thrilled to announce that it was been a Godsend to my son and my family. We cannot give enough praise to the teachers and staff. Now I am confident that my son will be successful

Curriculum is tailored to each student in a way that they succeed. My daughter loves the school and is thriving academically. Thank you Center Academy!
