Dr. Mack Hicks, who saw the need for a specialized,
full-day school for students who were falling through the cracks in traditional schools.
Center Academy Campus

Independent Special Education School


Center Academy is a private school offering specialized classes for middle-and high-school students with learning differences. Our small classes allow our teachers to accommodate each student’s unique learning style.

Our Teachers Understand and Care


At Center Academy, we begin each student’s education with an assessment of their learning style, their personality, and their previous experiences. Our teachers understand the nuances of a wide variety of learning differences such as ADHD, Dyslexia and high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder/Asperger’s and work with each student to develop goals that are in line with their unique potential. We provide a caring, comfortable atmosphere, where each student is able to work toward their goals at their own pace, either in a small group setting, or with individualized instruction.

Arrange for a Personal Tour of Center Academy


A personal tour of Center Academy will show you why students love it here. We’d love to show you around our campus and introduce you to our staff. We can also review your child’s particular needs, discuss our admissions process, and see whether your child might qualify for one of many scholarship programs. Please call your nearest campus today to arrange a tour!
