Shelby Academy (Closed 2006)

The mission of Shelby Academy is to prepare students for higher educational pursuits or technological careers.
We will accomplish this in a safe environment, guided by a staff of caring professionals teaching a challenging curriculum.
We believe that mutual respect among, and between, students and staff promotes the worth and dignity of each individual; students who set high goals are able to fully develop their potential; a safe and physically comfortable environment enhances student learning; development of personal values enables students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners; and students learn interpersonal relationships through cooperative groups, and demonstrate the responsibility of good citizenship by showing respect for others and their property.
