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
