Killian Oaks Academy saved our child. Their comprehensive approach made her abilities and talents blossom. She has friends, loves going to school, and rushes us in the morning to get there. We just held our quarterly conference and her academic and social growth were extraordinary. How wonderful life can be when your child is in the right school. Killian Oaks Academy has made all the difference in our lives.

Killian Oaks Academy views learning as a scientific process that engages student's attention through well researched strategies and techniques. Our daughter was lost in her previous school and she was labeled as an underachiever. She is now happy, enjoying school, completing her work, and understanding how to learn. We are deeply grateful for all Killian Oaks has done for our daughter!

I found the best school for my daughter and it is Killian Oaks Academy. My daughter was having a hard time with the students at her previous school and then we discovered K.O.A. which helps nurture their student's social skills. They guide them into developing friendships through their school sponsored extra curricular activities. I am ecstatic with her social and academic progress.

The director is a compassionate professional who understands my child and mentors me as a parent. The director of the school truly cares and so does her staff. What a wonderful community to be in!

Killian Oaks Academy brought out all the potential that I knew was in my child. He graduated this year with honors after an eight year journey in his second home. The administration and staff worked tirelessly to help him become the confident, intelligent, magnificently talented, and happy young man he is today. The words thank you are not enough to express our gratitude.

After visiting many schools I walked into Killian Oaks Academy and found understanding, compassion, and the expertise to help our family. My son was beginning to give up and Killian Oaks has returned his confidence and sense of self-worth. He is now above level in all academic areas. His teachers are wonderful, the administration is approachable and always go beyond the call of duty. Together they have helped him blossom socially and academically. Gratitude cannot begin to express how valuable Killian Oaks Academy is to our son and to our family.

Killian Oaks Academy has an extraordinary academic program. My daughter is so proud of herself. She is now reading, and reads everywhere we go, from streert signs to menus in restaurants. Killian Oaks has helped her discover the joy of learning and we are so happy. Their focus on helping each child discover the gift within has helped my child believe in herself and trust the world again.

My children love going to school everyday! Killian Oaks Academy nurtures then spiritually and challenges them academically. As a teacher myself, I appreciate their multi-modal approach where information is presented to my son and daughter according to their unique learning styles. My children's study skills have thrived. They have learned how to highlight important facts, write outlines, summarize information and study for tests. Their scores and abilities continue to improve. Thank you Killian Oaks Academy!

Killian Oaks Academy helped my son to overcome his learning and attentional difficulties. He is now attending the Dual Enrollment program in college and receving straight A's. He learned how to study and how to organize himself at KOA. The administration and staff have been a part of our family for the past 11 years. I am so greatful for the loving guidance and support our son and family continue to receive.

Let's be clear and specific what is really true. In my experience of sending my son there for the past years, it was yet a success. We went all over the place to find the right school for his learning disability and we did a huge leap on finding Killian Oaks Academy. The classroom environment is superb, yet the faculty changes within every month. I'll be realistic on what is really there and what is not for your future references. Education wise, based on 1-on-1 attention it is to the fullest. However, it is not quite a preparation for college. AP/Honor classes there are regular classes in a traditional high school. The after school activities are ridiculous, its not like anywhere else that the student could create his/her own club such as Glee club. You have to pay just to enter a club, when everywhere else is just signing up and walk in. For example, one of the clubs is only half an hour for an insane price that is not even worth the time. When it comes to exams, they give you what will be on the test, not actual studying experience. They say more than what they do in general. Creativity is against the rules there. Great for K-8. Not any further.

Killian Oaks Academy pushed me and I go there! I am graduating from U.M. thanks to K.O.A. Killian Oaks helped me develop my orgnizatonal ans study skills, and above all, my belief in myself. The administration encouraged me to participate in the Dual Enrollmen Program and I saw how I could attend college under K.O.A.'s menorship. I am grateful for their guidance, support, and exceptional program.

Killian Oaks Academy awakened my son and daughter's true potential and helped them excel academically. We were frustrated by the many labels we heard such as dyslexic, dyscalculic, dysgraphic, and ADD. We knew our children were very intelligent and could learn. Killian Oaks Academy supported us as parents and focussed on developing our children's many abilities. They helped them realize their true potential. Our children are happy and confident. Thank you for all you do everyday.

KOA was a breath of fresh air for our son! When he was in kindergarten, our son experienced a few delays. Unfortunately, the school he was in did not believe in accommodating his learning in any way, so we had to find a place that would work with him and honor his style of learning at his pace. At kinder he was coming home with "Fs" and very depressed. We visited many schools, in spending just one day at KOA, our son was a completely different person. He was happy, confident, and excited to do school work. That's all it took. Today, many years later, our son is doing great and heading off to high school. We are greateful for KOA.
