It is a wonderful school for students and parents. There is a strong sense of community.
It is truly a family community. As a parent, I am involved as much as I want to be. I can focus on life skills while EA focus' on educating each student. EA is a complete education from pre-K to high. Each child has mentors, examples and opportunities to explore real life situations. The education is phenomnal. the children are prepared for the next level the year before, they incrementally learn all the skills and tools they need to achieve success and happiness.
The school has a great curriculum, run by an amazing teaching staff. They bring out the best in the kids and give them the confidence to do anything they set their minds to!!
Awesome teaching, teaching methods, student teacher relatioship and fantastic teachers.
Elgin Academy is a wonderful family community that has a great atmosphere for children to grow and learn. Wonderful teachers and teaching methods.
It's a small school that averages about 15 students to each teacher. The teachers are there because they love what they do and not for the paycheck. Many of them not only teach but volunteer as coaches.
I was provided an interactive education where I was allowed and pushed to examine and develop my thinking, writing and pereptual skills in all academic as well as social areas. In this small, attentive environment I blossomed socially and academically and felt challenged.
Small class sizes, and excellent teachers that love what they do -- Mr. Kidston, Mr. Shearer, Ms. Merrill, Ms. Stillmank, Mr. Dwyer, just to name a few!
The small classrooms and high caliber, caring, and commited faculty make EA one of the best.
It's a great place to learn. A great place for sport. A great place for making friends. Small learning environment gives emphasis and focus on the student.
Perfect size classes for deep learning and complete subject knowledge.
It provide me with an excellent education with small classes and very outstanding faculty.
Elgin Academy is a rare school, where the teachers and faculty truly care about the students. Their goal is to help the student fulfill their maximum potential through maximum challenge and support. No other school can really compare.

Excellent and caring faculty and administration, excellent academics and focus on each individual student - very happy and appreciative to be at Elgin Academy
Elgin Academy is an outstanding place for students and parents due to its caring and nurturing administration and teachers. The highly challenging curriculum, individualized student attention and co-curricular activities are reflected as the student grows and gains social and academic confidence. We are very proud EA parents! We truly believe that our university sophomore s placement was not only due to our student s hard work and dedication but it s attributed to the hard work and effort of EA and its mission to work through the process as a collaborative effort between faculty, student and parents. Furthermore, the growth, confidence and excitement of our younger students is truly rewarding and attributed to EA s philosophy of enabling and challenging students to try things that they wouldn t have imagined. Thank you EA!
I love EA because of the small class sizesand the top education my son receives. The teachers are of excellent quality and they really care about the kids. I like the whole EA community it's been an awesome experience for my family.
