We can not believe there is such a wonderful school in our community. The advanced education my daughter has received has been outstanding. I wish I had known about Cranium Academy for my older child too. He basically does the same level stuff she is doing and he is 2 years ahead of her. I really appreciate the way they integrate critical thinking into the arts, sciences and math programs. We can not thank you enough for the educational exposure you are giving our girl.
