Porter Academy

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. To find out more about our program, please contact our school by calling (770) 594-1313.

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 Wilson, Edmark, and Touch Math
  • Layering of Information to Support Retention
  • Incorporation of Technology to Support Learning
