Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Academy's learning program enables students to learn about different learning styles and how to maximize their own learning potential by unlocking and using their strengths. We follow a path that has been developed by dr. Mel Levine, a developmental pediatrician, and his colleagues at the University of North Carolina based on scientific research and over twenty-five years of clinical experience. They provide us with a comprehensive framework for understanding how kids learn.

We've learned that this approach increases the likelihood that every child will be able to learn in a way that reduces frustration right away and ensures a greater success in life. Our programs facilitate greater success in school, build greater self-confidence and self-esteem, and restore hope to students and their families.

Every mind is uniquely endowed. As a result, our emphasis on the different ways individual kids learn and find success in their lives has relevance for all kids. Every student - not just those who are struggling- can benefit from having a greater understanding of his own strengths and weaknesses- a picture of how his mind works- along with insight and a plan for optimizing learning and performance.
