Our Writing approach makes it really fun and productive for kids. We use a multi-sensory approach for to get the kids into creative writing, informative and opinion writing. We also work on grammar use during this class and use our students’ interests to inspire their writing.
Additionally, we focus on handwriting. By the time each student leaves The Academy, they will learn to sign their name in cursive.

The Academy Way is the “WAY” we do school.
We are a network of Non-Traditional private schools specializing in discovering and cultivating the GREATNESS in children with Dyslexia, ADHD and Non-Traditional Learners.
Every child enters their school journey at different points. They each have different experiences, resources and teachings that they bring with them. Our school recognizes and embraces this.
The Academy Way, The Academy Virtual, and our affiliates are committed to the principle of equality.
