Wassell Academy (Closed 2020)
The Wassell Academy is a non-denominational Christian program of education that specializes in the teaching of children in a small classroom environment with individualized instruction and a positive reinforcement/discipline system.
Here each child is challenged at his/her own developmental level, regardless of chronological age.
This program is beneficial for all students, including those whose academic success is compromised in the classroom due to learning differences and attention problems.
The goal of the Wassell Academy curriculum is to develop competent young adults who experience the joy of learning and become independent, life-long learners.
