Chancellor Academy doesn't help succeed the educational value. Mostly by watching movies and playing games in class most of the day, the teachers don't really push the students to learn and do classwork. Principal mostly yelling down the hallways. I do not recommend this school.

Did not see the therapeutic value of the school at all. Rather than dealing with issues that occurred, suspension was given. Not sure what the educational value was as work was never sent home. My child complained about things being too easy and at times would refuse to participate. Was told conflicting information by different members of the administration. Was also told out and out lies about things going on and was not apologized to when I brought it to their attention. There are two co-prinicipals....a front man who seems great and another who speaks at you not to you. Pulled my child after 2.5 months in the school

Chancellor Academy exceeds the "excellent" rating as the teachers, counselors, staff, and director and principal all work together to meet the unique needs of all their students. My son has graduated from there and if it was not for their selfless compassion and diligence in helping their students to be "over comers and achievers " my son would have had a very different outcome in life ,due to the fact that other schools did not take the time to understand nor tailor a comprehensive education plan such as they did at Chancellor Academy. This is a EXCELLENT school and growing place for a child to achieve life goals with self confidence and encouragement from their educators to help them along their journey.

I didn't learn much at chancellor academy. students weren't pushed very little to do school/class work. there have been a lot of class periods where we'd just play games, or watch movies. going to chancellor was like being in a day dream, when i should have been preparing for college. i passed classes that i didn't complete more than two assignments for(including class assignments, homework, projects, etc.). the staff was great when i needed emotional support and they are great people, but the school has little academic structure.. it's very sad.

Now that the previous owner, RS, has left; perhaps students, staff, and parents will be treated better.

Chancellor has shown my son that he can achieve, that nothing is out of reach. He came out of his shell and holds his head up and sees that there options for him in life.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
