The superior level of education can not be beat. The small class sizes allow for individual attention that is not found elsewhere. All staff members are warm and loving. Like leaving your children with family. The before and after school programs as well as the summer programs are great for working parents. My sons have gone to The Learning Academy since 2004 and have received the best education possible as well as all the emotional support they need. Thank you Learning Academy.

Our daughter discovered The Learning Academy for daycare for our two young grandsons six years ago. Our family soon discovered that The Learning Academy is so much more. The staff is so warm and truly care about their students. We now have grandchildren in preschool and elementary at The Learning Acadeny. Our preschooler loves to go to school. He is thriving and learning so much. In elementary school the small class size allows all students to work above grade level and fulfill their potentail. The Learning Academy is a wonderful school.

The Learning Academy is an amazing school and the staff are wonderful. My daughter has learned so much there and when we moved it was so hard to say goodbye and try to find a school just as good. I would recommend The Learning Academy to anyone that wants their child to have a great preschool experience!

There are not enough words to express how much I appreciate the educational and emotional support the teachers at The Learning Academy provide my daughters. It is hard to leave your children all day, but knowing that they love their school helps ease the pain. I have a 3 year old in the preschool program and she enjoys all the art projects and songs she learns. My 5 year old is in 1st grade and excelling well beyond my expectations. She is reading at a 3rd grade level and learning multiplication. Finding a personalized education is so hard, but thankfully we have. Though this is a small school, keeping things 'old school' is important. They celebrate all holidays, say the 'Pledge of Allegiance' each morning, and provide a wonderful sense of community. I am very glad that my children have this school to start off their educational career. Thank you!

This has got to be the best preschool any of my children has attended. The staff are very easy to work with, and truly love my daughter. She looks forward to going there every day, and that makes me so happy to know she is going somewhere that she likes! I would recommend this preschool to anyone without any hesitation!

This is the one place I know my son is safe and being educated without being forced into conforming. The teachers work with every parent. The kids learn not only how to read write but they learn how to hold a conversation well as well as how to discuss current events. They have absolute patience even with my busy little boy.

My 3 kids,niece&nephew and my childhood friend's 2 children attended this school & what a wonderful experience!The Learning Academy gave them all a great, positive start to their education. My now 7th grader is in honors classes & my 5th grader is now at a public school & in the Gate program. My kinder child attends the school currently and loves the teachers, the students and the educational challenges. I attribute much of their success, their thirst to learn & positive educational foundation to The principal/owner, Sandy George and her staff. I have known them since 1998 when my kids first enrolled,with the recommendation of my sister who had two kids attending there and recommend The Learning Academy to ALL parents looking to give their child a great headstart to their education.Thank You Learning Academy! We Love You!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
