Why Fortis Academy?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, Fortis Academy is a school like no other – one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We set high standards, make expectations clear, and provide a safe and emotionally secure learning environment. In addition, we focus on real-world skills, problem solving, and how to be a good citizen. Our exceptional teachers meet students at their ability level and challenge them to go beyond. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"I love the environment! I like how they teach the students to be accountable for their actions and the morals and values that they instill in them. " - Fortis Academy Parent
Top Reasons Parents Send Their Children To Our School: *
1 Teachers are great at communicating with parents.
2 Children receive individual attention and instruction.
3 The curriculum provides moral focus as well as academics.
* Based on actual 2013 surveys administered to parents of kids who were returning to Fortis Academy

Does the school have power this morning? Many areas are without power since around 1:30am.

In light of what happened today on Golfside in front of the school, I would like to say to all you parents that park on Golfside to drop off or pick up your kids you should think about what you are doing. There is nothing worse than losing a child, I know this because I have lost a daughter. It only takes a few minutes to go through the line and make sure your children are safe. You should try leaving earlier so you have time to go through the line so you can get to where you have to be. It is unsafe for your children to get out of the car on golfside, and it is unsafe for the parents who are following the rules, because it is hard to get around you when your vehicle is sticking out in the road and it is hard to see around you when you are parked there for us to pull out safely. Please, Please follow the rules and keep all our Fortis Students Safe.
