My son has been at Center Academy since 8th grade. He is now a senior and will be going on to college. The teachers know all the students and are so supportive. The principal is fabulous. Mr. Stone makes the effort to know all the students along with their strengths and weaknesses.

Center Academy is a very well run school. I have 2 children that have been going there for 2 years. We are planning on having them stay all the way through 12th grade. I love the fact that the teachers cater their lessons and learning styles to each individual child. Having 2 children with special needs, they thrive in this type of environment. Teachers and teacher assistants are great at communicating with me throughout the week. I also want to add that administration is excellent there as well. I always feel informed of what's going on within the whole school. The principal, Mr. Stone, has a very caring heart for all of his students there. It is very easy to be able to get in and talk with him about my children's needs. You can tell he has excellent leadership skills because his staff is great. Before my children went here, their self esteem was so low about school and learning. Since they have not only risen their grades from C`s to A`s and B`s, their confidence level has shot through the roof. I am forever grateful for this school. I look forward to the rest of the years they will be attending Center Academy.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
