Our Mission

Porter Academy is dedicated to educating children by utilizing individualized programs that are appropriate to each student’s developmental level and learning style.

Our Beliefs

  • Children can reach untapped potential when provided with
    • appropriate small group instruction
    • social guidance
    • therapeutic support
  • Children are best able to succeed academically and socially when the school
    • utilizes a whole-child approach
    • simultaneously develops academics and foundational abilities (e.g., processing skills, attention, motor skills)
    • promotes development of self-esteem and intrinsic motivation
  • Regular assessments are necessary to determine the most effective intervention for each child

Our StudentsPorter Academy

We serve children Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade who have difficulties with language processing,dyslexia, attention (ADHD), sensory processing, visual processing, auditory processing,motor skills (dyspraxia), organization, social skills, and self-esteem.

Our Approach

At Porter Academy, we take an individualized “whole child” approach.  We understand that not all children fit into a mold in regards to what they need to succeed.  We bring the expertise of teachers, therapists, and administrators together to develop a comprehensive understanding of each child.  This enables us to determine the most effective interventions (academic, social, developmental, and emotional) for that particular child.  We enable the child to experience success both through modifications and through remediation of underlying difficulties. The modifications allow for immediate success; the remediation leads to lasting success. Both lead to improved self-esteem and internal motivation to learn.
