My son just started at the school for ninth grade. I wish we had found it sooner. He is so much happier and his self-esteem has improved so much. The school really is capable of dealing with the kids that fall through the cracks in traditional public and private schools. My son is thriving! And when you ask him- He can only say good things about the school. The staff is also very communicative and willing to work with us to deal with any sensory or ADHD issues. Just can't say enough good things about this school!

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.
