Center Academy has made a huge impact on my son. In the public schools he was treated by the teachers as an inconvenience because he learned differently. Thankfully, we had such an amazing support system around him that the negativity didn't impact his self esteem. At Center Academy he is treated like a student. He is gifted in certain areas and struggles in certain areas, no different that any other child. He is allowed to be himself and they understand context as to why he struggles where he struggles and are willing to modify what they are doing. Unique learner is not a bad thing at Center Academy. They are given an education in totality that teaches the intersection between what they are learning with how it will impact them in the real world.

My son is not the perfect, cookie-cutter kid. This school was the 1st bright star in his education. He feels accepted and understood here and finally, like a student!
