My grandson has high functioning autism and has trouble focusing. The staff is so patient and has his well being ahead of their own. We have not had such positive results with the public school system or 2 other private schools. He is starting his 2nd year and will be in the 7th grade. He is actually looking forward to the new school year. Great teacher and she has an assistant that is wonderful. Thank you Center Academy!
We moved from a Major City and my kids were doing so bad. Within few years they have made excellent progress and now love going to the school again. What a difference. It's worth every penny that we pay.
My son is in his 3rd year at Center Academy and is making terrific progress. While he was a student in public school if he didn't understand the concept he was lost because the class had moved on to something else. That does not happen now. He is able to get more attention and therefore understands the concept. This is all because of Center Academy.
Center Academy is the best school in Orange Park. Excellent, caring educators, competent staff, progress in every subject. If your child is struggling, I urge you to contact Orange Park Center Academy. McKay Scholarships accepted. Sliding scale tuition.
My daughter is about to graduate from Center Academy, it has been an incredible experience for her. The public school system wasn't working for her, she was just part of a crowd. No one cared if she succeeded. At Center Academy they really care. They have worked with her and found the way she learns best. I will never forget her first report card when she came to me with tears in her eyes and announced that she LEARNED, it was amazing to see that light back in her eyes. The single best decision I made as a parent was to send my daughter to Center Academy!!!
My son has Asperger's Syndrome, and the public shool system's strategy for this "square peg" was to hammer him into that round hole as hard as it could. At Center Academy, they changed the shape of the hole. Since he began attending school there this year, he is the happiest and most engaged he has ever been. Center's professional, responsive staff works with him academically and has created a safe, warm social environment. For the first time in his life, he doesn't dread going to school, and his performance has improved dramatically. I love Center Academy.
My son started 9th grade here after being in public school all his life. He has done so much better since making the switch. He is so much happier and learning more of the things he is interested in along with the basic. It's no longer the battle it use to be each morning to get him ready to go. Thank you for providing a place he feels secure in.

Center Academy has provided my son with an opportunity to grow emotionally while advancing academically. The environment is supportive with excellent leadership. Although he is acadmeically talented, his emotional immaturity kept him from reaching his social and academic goals. Now he is blossoming and is succeeding at a college level with dual enrollment.
My son has attended Center Academy since the seventh grade - he will be a senior in the fall of 2010. Justin had a hard time in the local public school, and no matter how hard I tried, he never seemed to get the help he needed to succeed. I looked into the private schools in my area, and chose Center Academy. I am so glad I did! The change in him after the move was immediately apparent. He began to succeed, and his self esteem improved. The teachers and staff have helped him immensely! I have the utmost respect for and confidence in every person at Center Academy. I can never thank them enough for the support and help in my child's success in school.
