Mission: The students at Churchill Academy are successful because they are provided with a supportive environment and individualized academic programming which teaches to their strengths, addresses their weaknesses, and encourages compensatory strategies.
About the School: Churchill Academy is a one-of-a-kind school for bright children with
unique learning differences. For some this may mean that they can read
information, but cannot remember it. For others this means that they
understand what they read, but cannot express it. Many are gifted in
specific, intellectual, and academic areas, but their potential is
overlooked by educators because they aren't able to achieve in
mainstream academic environments with traditional methods, materials and
techniques. These children learn differently.
