Our Academics

Embracing Challenge

The academic program at READ Academy places an emphasis on the dyslexic student’s learning style while providing research backed, evidence-based curricula to ensure maximum growth and development. Small class sizes and exceptional, qualified educators allow us to offer a comfortable and inclusive educational environment, while ensuring each student receives the individualized attention and support they need. We understand how to motivate, captivate and inspire dyslexic learners to become whomever they desire to be. The sky is the limit for these bright students!

“We are all different. We have different hair and different eyes. We like different foods and different stories. So why in the world would we expect everyone to think and learn in the same way?”
