Center Academy's Full Profile



Center Academy says

Center Academy provides a small, safe, accredited college prep environment for students who have fallen behind or who want to get ahead. Based in Florida, Center Academy started the first school for dyslexia in the United Kingdom. Center Academy is family-operated since 1968. It was founded by Dr. Mack Hicks, neuro-psychologist and chairman of the board of directors. More than a dozen directors, teachers, and staff have worked as members of the Center Academy "family" for at least 10 years. Center Academy private schools do not give the FCAT. Because education is much broader than a single measure, we do not "teach to the test". Nevertheless, our nationally-normed assessments consistently demonstrate that, on the whole, Center Academy students make learning gains greater than they had in their prior schooling.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
