Academy of Excellence has a long tradition of child centered educational philosophies. By providing a structured but relaxed environment children learn best when intellectual curiosity is sparked. Skilled staff pride themselves in creating surroundings that encourage laughter, warmth and confidence. The exceptional curriculum concentrates on the development of a child’s fine and gross motor skills, as well as cognitive development challenging students to become competent individuals.

Direct teaching instruction in small groups is key in the youngest ages. The youngest children learn through free play, developing their much needed social skills. As students move to the next level they bring a confidence to master early literacy, math, handwriting and oral communication with both teachers and friends.
