Why the Academy at Middle Fork is the right school for your child

The Academy provides a balanced education and so much more! 

"We don’t call them just students, we call them scholars. And so, by saying that they are scholars, that pushes them to say, “I am great, I am capable of learning, I can do this.” — Monique Johnson, Fifth Grade Teacher

Academy students and teachers learn together through an integrated curriculum with flexible instruction. Curiosity is encouraged and student success is prioritized, and shared ownership of behavioral expectations results in a calm, happy environment.
