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 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
