The Novus Academy

In too many instances, our children are forced to fit schools and systems that don`t truly cater to their specific needs or strengths.
At The Novus Academy, our philosophy is unique - we provide a learning environment that nurtures students as individuals. They receive focused attention, positive reinforcement and an education that matches their true potential. The Novus Academy provides three distinct educational tracks, designed to support each student`s needs: Learning Differences, Cognitive Difficulties with High Academic Achievement, or Talented/Gifted.
