Helping Students Reach Their True Potential
At Porter Academy, we believe that each and every child has the potential to have a bright, successful future. While traditional public schools may be suitable for some children, it is often not ideal for children with learning differences, developmental differences, or anxiety. Rather than creating a one size fits all education model, our faculty focuses on creating a program that is tailored to each student’s specific academic, developmental, and social-emotional needs. We take a whole-child approach to help each child appreciate their strengths and develop in areas that are more difficult for them.

Personalized Education & Care
Porter Academy began as an effort to tap into and harness each child’s unique potential. With over fifteen years of experience, we have learned to develop a comprehensive understanding of each child and have a large “toolbox” from which to pull to meet each child’s individual needs (academic, developmental, and social-emotional). As our teachers work with each student, they begin to develop strategies to help them succeed both inside and outside of the classroom.
Examples of our teaching methods include
- Student:Teacher ratio of 6:1 for Core Academics
- Engaging Multi-Sensory Learning Activities
- Utilization of Well-Supported Programs including Orton-Gillingham, Edmark, and Touch Math
- Layering of Information to Support Retention
- Incorporation of Technology to Support Learning
