Testimonials

“After three years of homeschooling our child after a bullying incident in another school, he expressed an interest in returning to school. As parents, I’m sure you can understand how hard bullying is, and how difficult it was to trust school again. Coming to Brevard Academy changed all that for us. From the first meeting with teachers and administration, we knew this school was different. The year has been extraordinary for our child–and for us. The teachers are accessible and responsive by email, and his needs as a child with Autism have been fully met. He’s thriving at Brevard Academy in a way we never dreamt possible.”

After extensive research I went with my gut feeling as a parent for what was the best environment for my child. I felt that all the schools provided a quality education but the engagement of the staff at BA was the clincher! They teach with heart as if the children were their children. My daughter is in first grade and I am continually impressed that the teachers take each child at their level and help them achieve the individually tailored goals to meet the achievement goal for the year even if that goal includes material for higher grades! My daughter’s excitement for learning has been cultivated this year and this makes a Mama proud! I enjoy seeing the flourishing girl she has become from the shy child that she was two years ago! Our next child proudly will start Kindergarten in the Fall!

Three years ago, our family chose Brevard Academy for it’s class schedule and classical curriculum through core knowledge . We had a son entering Kindergarten and we knew he needed a schedule that would allow him to move and be active. We found Brevard Academy offered both recess and physical education along with both a snack and lunch breaks. We are thankful through the Core Knowledge curriculum our children learn Spanish, music, art, and Singapore Math. The class ratios are small, offering both a teacher and assistant teacher to each Kindergarten class. They are also offered many field trips throughout the year. On the first day of Kindergarten, my son jumped in the van and said, “Mom, guess what I get to go back tomorrow!” And he has woken up every school day since then with a sense of enthusiasm for learning. We found this to be true for our younger daughter as well. Our kids have thrived due to their excellent staff. The Brevard Academy community is personal and involves families in the learning process. It has been the right partnership for our family.
