Fortune Academy has saved our children's lives and our family. This school has given a future to them when I thought their wasn't going to be one. The school has more patience than anything I have ever seen. Each child is given an individualized plan and class sizes are maintained to max of 6 in the lower school. My son went from not being able to get it out, to the Neuropsych saying "He is learning far above what I ever thought he could!" Fortune Academy has a way of making learning fun for the children. My son has everything from severe ADHD to learning differences to major medical issues and Fortune Academy has helped him achieve greatness in spite of all of that. He now is in 5th grade and is now even thinking about what he wants to do in the future. Our Family life has improved beyond words can express. No more fights about homework and no issues in the morning going to school. In fact, they can not wait to go to school now.

Fortune Acadrmy is an excellent school choice if your child is in K-12 and has a learning difference. HSE public schools not able to accommodate my child with ADHD and NLD. Her grades were good but low self esteem. Classes too large and teachers not equipped with proper tools or training.

Over the past 5 years, my daughter has blossomed at Hutson! She was really struggling and unhappy at her previous school. After shadowing at Hutson, she begged me to take her there the next day. She knew immediately that it was the right environment for her, where the teachers understood her learning differences and all of her peers were experiencing similar challenges. Hutson, not only taught my daughter to read but has given her tremendous courage and self- confidence.

Hutson has been the best thing that has ever happened to us!! For years my daughter was floundering and that was with her private school giving extra assistance and her being tutored almost daily after school!!! She has now been attending Hutson for 4 years and she has grown tremendously!! Her self esteem is back and she is flourishing! The teachers and staff give 110% and are overly qualified for the jobs they serve! The cost to educate each child greatly exceeds the amount of the tuition but they make it work!! I will be forever grateful for what they have done for my precious girl!!!

Our son has been a student since 2009. He has soared at Hutson. His future has absolutly no limits because of the loving, dedicated teachers and administrators. This school is worth EVERY penny. Take a look at the cost of a boarding school and you will see the tens of thousands this school will save you. The love and acceptance of all these wonderful kids is felt the moment you walk in the door. We couldn't recomend a school any better! Our sons life with forever be blessed because of this school. THANK YOU HUTSON!

After several years of struggling in public school we heard about the Hutson School and enrolled our daughter in 2010. Her experience there has been outstanding. She has received targeted reading instruction using the Orton Gillingham method which has dramatically improved her reading fluency & comprehension. The school's environment is one of warmth and acceptance while still challenging the kids to strive to be their personal best. The teacher to student ratio has been a major factor in our daughter's success. I highly recommend The Hutson School.

I have been blessed to be a part of such an amazing school community. This school has done tremendous things in the 9 years it has been opened. It is 1 of 10 schools in the country accredited by AOGPE. It has a licensed school psychologist and the staff are highly credentialed. Students who graduate have gone on to Purdue, Texas Tech, Ivy Tech, VU, etc. It is an excellent school!
