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.
* Based on actual 2013 surveys administered to parents of kids who were returning to Fortis Academy

A big thank you to our families that participated in KinderCamp this week and allowed us to spend time with their incoming Kindergarten student! The teachers loved getting to know the students and watching them learn and make new friends. Our KinderCamp "Grand Finale" was the Hands On Museum visit with activities that were fun and educational! Afterwards, as in true camp fashion, the students enjoyed making S'mores treats to eat. Take a look at some of our adorable new Fortis Falcons in action...
Don’t miss the last installment of our summer reading challenge — this time, taking on classic literature with suggestions for the whole family. goo.gl/UKXbrZ
