Our daughter is classified as highly gifted. We extensively looked for the right school for her, a school that used methods specifically geared toward giftedness, creativity, self esteem, success and freedom to grow at her own pace. We moved 50 miles to be near this school. I absolutely assure you Academy Hill is one of a kind, and worth the effort. Each child is thought of as a unique contributor and learner. Lesson plans take the individual and his or her special needs and talents into consideration.

After an extensive search, we found a perfect fit for our son at Academy Hill. A very individualized program enables each student to work at their own pace, with emphasis placed on math and literacy. I would highly recommend this school for those looking for a strong academic base and small class size.
