Anxiety plagues many students academic and personal lives. This mental block can be overcomed with proper therapy and a nurturing and empowering learning environment.

Our Program & Curriculum
Our unique therapy techniques are derived from Orton-Gillingham among other visual, auditory, and cognitived based excercises. Our Educational Therapy teaches how to learn as opposed to what to learn and helps students become independent learners. Through cognitive brain training, students are able to memorize academic material more efficiently and take on tasks on a more productive manner.
Classroom & Daily Schedule
Our school is designed around the philosophy of a good work-life balance. Therefore, we retain are students in school for no more than 7 hours per class day and ensure they get all core classes and necessary electives each week. Homework time is an average of just 1-1.5 hours each day.
As a mother, I found Excelsior Academy and saw a difference in the first day of class. She was placed in a class where she felt like she belonged. My daughter is benefiting from individualized attention at Excelsior; the teacher and the staff show they care about their students. They also worked hard to get my daughter on grade level. My daughter is finally happy to go to school each morning.
At Excelsior the instruction is tailored to the individual student’s need. The teacher customizes curriculum for each child, which allows for self-paced learning. If the student learns the concept then she moves forward or if needed she can continue to review that material. My child made excellent progress and gained confidence at Excelsior. Previously she hated to read but now reads for pleasure!
