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. Our exceptional teachers individualize instruction based on your child’s needs. In addition we focus on real-world skills and how to be a good person. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"I think that Fortis academy is a great school filled with wonderful people! I believe that everyone in the school truly cares about each child and are doing their best to help every single child. My daughter has grown to be such a great individual because of the influence at school and all of the support she receives from every teacher." - Fortis Academy Parent
Top Reasons Parents Send Their Children To Our School: *
1 The teachers provide a great foundation for the kids morally and academically.
2 I am very glad that the teachers assess every child's learning level and assigns them at their level of competency.
3 The curriculum provides moral focus as well as academics.
