The foundation that is being created in my kids is incredible. With a low parent teacher ratio, 1:1 technology, Spanish, STEAM, art, music, and P.E. the leadership of SMEA understands that education is so much more that preparing for standardized tests! The education standards are high, but so is the creation of character. The kids not only have recess but they also have P.E. every day! I highly recommend SMEA if you are looking for the best education in Brevard County!

There are not enough words to describe how much we love St. Mark's Episcopal Academy. The small school size allows for an amazing family feel you can't get at lager schools. The faculty and staff go above and beyond in so many ways. The children not only receive an amazing education in all the traditional subjects they get so much more. Each grade has weekly classes in the STEAM lab where they are learning so many amazing things. My kindergartner comes home with launchers she built, 3D printed shapes, light up creations and so much more! They have PE and recess daily, music and Spanish twice a week and art once a week. Students are also taught so many important life skills. They are taught to be respectful of other's feelings, solve problems without conflict and reflect on their actions when they make a mistake. St. Mark's reaches the child as a whole and offers so many extra-curricular topics to help spark an interest in every child. I can't imagine my children attending any other school. Call and schedule a tour, you won't be disappointed.

This school has been amazing! It has taken my child in and embraced them. My child was shy and bashful and now is more outgoing. They have small class sizes to help the individual student in all areas. They offer many subjects like STEAM, PE every day, art, music, Spanish and library days. They are currently working on rebuilding marine biology that was wiped out with a past hurricane. They have a hands on approach to learning. This school is a "hidden gem" and we are very lucky to have found it after our relocation. I can honestly say, my child is loved there and feels important. My child feels like this is home away from home and not just some kid in a classroom.

From PreK-3 to 6th grade, St. Mark's is an impressive and amazing program that gets your child ready to face any challenge in his/her future. I praise St Mark's every day for the smart and well rounded student that my son is, and his success in adjusting very easily to living in a new country!

This school is such a blessing! Our daughter attended for 9 wonderful years from PreK3-6th. She learned life skills, achieves high academics, speaks easily in public, and is well rounded. Her greatest gift is her kind and generous heart. All of these things were nurtured and grown in the St. Mark's environment. Priceless.

I am excited to see my son, now in prek-4, to continue his school journey at St. Mark's. He loves the STEAM lab, PE and recess everyday! I love that after leaving prek3 he knew all of his letter sounds, and can verbally spell his name. The academics are rigorous, and with the new plans for expansion, we are thankful we chose St Mark's for our children's educational journey!

As the COVID-19 virus spreads throughout the United States, we look at steps schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
