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.

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!

Elgin Academy has a diverse and inclusive community of staff and students. My daughter is fascinated by the curriculum and she loves her teacher! What more could you ask for!!!
We love the atmosphere and the small class size. My kids love having music, art and french class every week. It is a team approach to learning with the teachers and parents working together to create the best learning environment for the children.
I love Elgin Academy because my daughter has grown tremendously since enrolling there last year. She is being challenged daily and her mind is definately being stimulated. Everyone at Elgin Academy welcomed her with open arms and made her feel like she had been there forever!
I love the cultural diversity! There is a constant team effort between faculty and parents to ensure a positive learning environment for the children.
Elgin Academy is amazing! The creative environment, the dedication of the teachers and staff, and the overall positive atmosphere of the school -- you simply must come to see for yourself. Students are given every opportunity to blossom and be their best 'self.' I highly recommend Elgin Academy to anyone who wants the very best academic life for their child!
The teachers! The classes! The organized approach to problem solving. These folks are really plugged in.
Great community with strong support from parents and teachers where everyone is looking out for each other, and students are allowed to be themselves and to stretch themselves academically.
