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

Why is there no morning care being offered right now? This is very frustrating
TODAY is the big day! The Fortis staff is excited to see our families today at the Community Festival/Petting Zoo. Teachers will be there to meet and greet new students and begin building relationships to get the year off to a great start. If there is rain, we will hold the event indoors, so don't let a few rain drops keep you from joining us today! There’s so much FUN planned for you and we can't wait to begin welcoming you back!
