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.

Stronger administrative staff needed as well as adequately trained teaching staff for this population.

Some benefits include small class size and overall school population.

However concerns regarding authenticity and genuinitety of head school official at this location
Center Academy appeared at a time when we were at a crossroad with public schools being overcrowded. I will say we have been VERY pleased with our decision. We were actually approached to leave him in public school just for his standardized testing scores.
