My daughter came from a bullying situation and now she looks forward to coming to school every day, because of Cortona Academy's welcoming embrace. The teachers are supportive, encouraging and last, but not the least, the students treat each other with respect only found in families. Now I have a very young, confident young lady graduating from Cortona Academy with a solid academic foundation and looking forward to nursing school. Before Cortona, my daughter was always worried about going to school and always came home depressed and sad, regardless of all the encouragement from her family. At Cortona, this became history. She enjoys coming to school every day and already says how much she will miss the school after graduation. Mrs. Strauchs, the Director, has been a God-sent gift to the school and we all truly appreciate all her help and faith in her students.

Cortona is such a unique school that will cater to child's own learning style and work with them to achieve goals they never before thought they could reach! Cortona had been such a great school for our daughter with excellent staff and teachers. They know what they are doing and how to work alongside your child at their own pace, but also will help them work and learn son a way know other school does. Cortona teachers are to notch and surely the most caring, supportive, knowledgeable teachers around. They go above and beyond the normal school. The school offers a very unique way of learning that know other school had. I feel that all students should have the luxery to learn this method. Cortona Academy had helped en outage our daughter to dream of the future she never thought she was capablr of achieving . The staff encourages your child to dream big and they'll help them to be prepared to follow that dream. They help build confidenceinto these kids and to know that if they continue to dream big, work hard, and stay focused they can achieve what they started out to do. Cortona Academy had helped our daughter further her education farther than she ever thought she could achieve. She's receiving an excellent grades at a higher level of learning than ever before this allowing her to raise her GPA and help her to receive acceptance letters to three of the wonderful colleges she sought to attend. Not only accepted but with wonderful scholarships as well! She has received scholarships offers for $19,000.00 and another for $17,000.00 from two different colleges. This is amazing!!! We are so excited for our daughter and thankful for all of the hard work, patience, and support she has received from Cortona Academy in helping her toward achieving her goal. She couldn't have done it without you behind her cheering her on to success! We are forever grateful we found your school Cortona Academy!

My son just received over $100,000 in merit college scholarship at the college of his choice to study pre-med with guaranteed acceptance to medical school. This is due to his transferring to Cortona Academy as a junior. Before that time, he was only looking to attend NOVA and hopefully transfer into a 4-year college. This wonderful future that my son now has would have been impossible without the wonderful help, patience and encouragement of the teachers and staff at Cortona Academy. When I came to this country 30 years ago, I never imagined my son ever being in such an advantageous position with his schooling. This is all due to the decision I made two years ago to move him from the public school and invest in his future before college. Now Cortona has prepared him for college. He is confident, self-assured, and ready to tackle any academics that come his way. All because of the solid foundation at Cortona Academy.
