New Adventures Await
Lower School days are filled with fun
“We love Amelia Academy so much and all the credit goes to the staff for making the school warm and welcoming while also pushing our kids academically. Every single day the kids are happy when we drop them off and pick them up. They are both learning so much.”
Students at Amelia Academy can explore new interests, whether in sports or extra-curricular programs. Students are encouraged to become involved and try something new.
Opportunities are provided for each student to learn how to think critically and make intelligent choices.
Teachers provide challenges for students in small classes. They engage students’ intellectual curiosity and broaden their horizons within the framework of a traditional, text-book based curricula.

A Message From Our Head of School
Amelia Academy’s mission is to educate the whole student including, but not limited to, ethical, intellectual, and physical development. Our purpose is to develop in each student qualities of good character, leadership, scholarship, and service. Opportunities are provided for each student to learn to think critically and to make intelligent choices. Our school stresses the importance of principled behavior with emphasis on honor, integrity and personal responsibility.
We endeavor to prepare our students for all levels of education beyond secondary school so that each student will adapt to a rapidly changing world and make a worthwhile contribution to our democratic society. The Board of Directors, administration, faculty, and staff believe that our students should view their youth as a time of accomplishment in which they greatly expand their knowledge of themselves, our nation, and the world. We want our students to experience and cultivate an awareness of intellectual, physical, social and emotional development as important ingredients in the quality of life.
Our function is to challenge our students at all academic levels and to instill just, moral and democratic values. We believe our students need experiences in responsibility, critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, creativity, leadership, decision making and communicative skills.
Since our student population encompasses many backgrounds, we utilize this diversity to broaden our students’ horizons and help them develop an understanding of others. We also host selected foreign students who help enrich the cultural diversity of the Academy.
