CA does not tolerate bullying or disrespectful behavior, I love that. I had a terrible experience with my son being bullied in public schools where the teachers and administrators did nothing. It seemed to me they were at times worse than the children.
CA doesn't believe in a child doing a lot of homework. They believe the work should be completed at school with the teacher there for assistance. So my son doesn't spend hours every evening going over the same things he should have been doing in school.
My son has been a student at Center Academy for 3 years since the 9th grade. He is in his 4th year at CA, he is a senior this year and will be graduating summer of 2017. This has been the best school experience for him, these are his words not mine. He loves the school, the administrators, the teachers and most of all the friends he made over the years. Everyone at CA truly cares about the students and their academic development. They specialize in learning challenges and differences. My son, although he is very bright, he thinks outside the box, therefore did not do well in traditional school environment. At CA they not only identified his best learning style and work with him but they also encourage that forward limitless thinking. The teachers are skilled and specialized in this area. I have seen such great improvement in my son’s grades and his social skills starting from his first year and he keeps getting better each year. As a parent I am grateful to find a school like CA after having serious heartbreaking, disappointing difficulties with previous schools. I can’t say enough good things about CA, it’s been the best thing for my son, a real blessing for me.
We have been thrilled with Center Academy. This was our son's first year (7th grade), and he made more academic progress in one year than he ever made in public school or his previous private school. The staff and the teachers are great, and they do a fantastic job of communicating with the parents throughout the year. We would highly recommend this school.
