Fortis Academy provides a classical, college preparatory education to students, grades K-12, while satisfying those whose core values demand greater parental involvement in the child-rearing process. By following a University-Model® approach, students attend the academy 2-3 days per week depending on age, while their parents co-teach on off days. In addition to spending more time with their families, this college-simulated format encourages students to pursue apprenticeships, volunteer opportunities, extra-curricular activities, and other character building endeavors.
As a private school, our emphasis is to instill in our students a love of learning, which promotes life-long growth rather than teaching to a test. Inherent in a University-Model School system, courses are offered by academic level, rather than age, allowing individually-paced progression where students can both accelerate in their strengths, and address their weaknesses. Reflected in our tuition rates are the superior teachers we employ, balanced by a reduced class time, which helps bring private education within the financial reach of a growing number of families.
If your insistence is on the whole heart of a child, we invite you to discover the gift of time that is intently offered at Fortis Academy. Please visit us at one of our upcoming parent information meetings.
