From Center Academy - Smyrna

Center Academy began in 1968 with the vision of its founder, Dr. Mack Hicks. Seeing the need for a specialized, full-day school for students who were falling through the cracks in traditional schools, Dr. Hicks established one of the first schools in the US to focus on the needs of students with Attention Deficit Disorder and other neuropsychological processing difficulties.

With a team of professionals in the fields of neuropsychology, education, and individualized remediation, CA opened its first classrooms in the Science Center in St. Petersburg, FL. The school focused on remediating learning disabilities and providing a small, focused, and positive learning environment for students who had experienced academic frustration, and for whom tutoring and other part-time programs were not successful.

As Center Academy has expanded to locations around FL, and into Smyrna, GA in 2008, it has stayed true to its mission and kept its focus on addressing the unique needs of each student.

    There is no bullying at CA Smyrna, and it is a safe place for him to be.
    But, for the Private School Money$ we pay, we need more than a babysitter.
    They give handouts for assignments, no homework, and our son says he is not learning anything new.
    There is a very HIGH turnover in teachers! Only 1 teacher returned from last year, and at least 4 are gone this year so far, and it is only February!
    These are Special Needs kids who need structure, continuity and teachers and staff that are trained to understand kids on the Spectrum, but they don't have these things.
    I am very disappointed and hope that they can remedy their issues.

    Center Academy of Smyrna is perfect for my son. It was a hard process trying to find a school that met his needs as a student with learning disabilities and did not require me to travel long distances to get him to school. This is his second year here at the school and he has improved dramatically not only in his studies, but also in his overall health. He is more outgoing, happy and loves to do his classwork, and is equally more motivated to do his classwork. My son has made wonderful improvements, not only academically but also with his confidence. I like the fact that the teachers and staff are very caring. He gets more individualized attention than he had before. The curriculum challenges my son without being so hard that he can’t figure it out. In the end, he is prouder and have better self-esteem because his hard work has paid off. What my son needed was a challenge and an opportunity to show his abilities. That’s what Center Academy of Smyrna offers.
    Director and staff are friendly and helpful. They really try to met every need of their students! They test each student to see ow they l;earn, then set up a program tailored to each student!
