Having a comfortable & flexible learning environment is very important at our school. Who of us wants to be uncomfortable when working or learning?! We definitely don’t want that for our kids. We have a variety of seating options for students to use throughout the school day. Students can sit on wobble stools while working at a table, sit on the floor while working on a clipboard, or stand up if that helps them to focus. We want our kids to enjoy coming to school, be comfortable while they are learning, and understand that we each have our own individual preferences . . . and that’s ok.

The Academy Way is the “WAY” we do school.
We are a network of private schools specializing in discovering and cultivating the GREATNESS in children with Dyslexia, ADHD and Non-Traditional Learners.
Every child enters their school journey at different points. They each have different experiences, resources and teachings that they bring with them. Our school recognizes and embraces this.
The Academy Way, The Academy NJ and our affiliates are committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment. Therefore, we do not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Nor do we discriminate against individuals on the basis of their religion, disability, age, veteran status, ancestry, national or ethnic origin.
