Commonwealth Academy is a welcoming school where many different kinds of learners can succeed in grades 3-12.
Average to gifted students who require the individual attention available only in very small class sizes, as well as students who have been diagnosed with a specific learning disability (LD) and/or with ADHD, will find an environment that celebrates their unique talents, challenges them appropriately, and supports their areas of need.
It’s a place where students gain the self-confidence required to connect with their teachers and peers, and engage in and take responsibility for their education. As they rise from Lower to Middle to High School, they become aware of their learning differences, accept them, and learn to advocate for what they need to excel.
Our curriculum is embedded with student-centered learning strategies and an award-winning technology program. Students successfully complete course requirements at grade level or higher, reflective of their potential, social development, and emotional growth.
