We take very seriously our commitment to creating an environment that is friendly, open, and welcoming for all our students.  We work closely with parents and caregivers to ensure that every student has a positive learning experience.

Students with chronic disciplinary and comportment issues will be asked to withdraw from our programs with no refund.

The Academy reserves the right to deny enrollment based on a student’s past behavior.
