Center Academy has been amazing. They have been exactly what my son needed. He struggled with charter schools not following his 504 plan and making accommodations as to where center academy is very accommodating to every student's needs. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a great place for their children who are struggling in public or charter schools with ADHD, learning disabilities, and other struggles..
