Young Academy has been such a breath of fresh air for our 7th grader. She was doing fine in public schools, excelling academically, but not creatively. Once she started attending Young, her passions became her subject matter. The teachers are so wonderful to encourage exploration and innovation in their project-based learning style. Our daughter has found her place in a small group of like-minded students, and the "family" we have found ourselves part of at Young Academy has been so wonderful. The teachers, administrators and other parents all work together so well to create an environment we can all be proud of. My daughter has been exposed to so many competitions and experiences that were lacking in public school. The small class size at Young allows teachers to take lots of one-on-one time with their students, and fosters relationships that are truly amazing. Parent-teacher conferences at Young are such great experiences. I am consistently amazed at how well my daughter's teachers know and understand her and by how intently they hope for and foster her success.

As the father of a GT student, I am amazed at the level of excitement and educational growth my daughter has shown in just a short time at Young Academy. I wasn't too up on all of the educational terms, but I now understand what the teachers were talking about with the differentiated instruction and project-based learning. One area in which my child is strong is math. In her old school, everyone studied the same thing, and when the whole class was done, they moved on to the next thing. Here she doesn't have to be held back when she masters a concept. She can continue on as far as she can go. And with the project-based format, she is figuring out how to solve real-world problems. She really get excited about her projects, but most impressively to me, she doesn't just memorize stuff, she actually understands and can apply the formulas and other elements she has learned (you know, the ones we were all taught in school, and wondered why we bothered because we would never use them in real life!). The kids get it because they implement these things and see them work in action.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
