From Cortona Academy

Founded in 1992, Cortona Academy is a private, college preparatory STEM+H program serving grades 7-12. We understand our students work at different paces and we reach them at all levels. Our profoundly unique 'team approach' educational philosophy includes a 4:1 student-teacher ratio, optional one-on-one tutoring, and inspirational professional mentors who guide our students to internships that change their futures while improving their grades, study skills, hi-tech skills, and confidence. We believe every student must experience success, motivation, and happiness in our stress-free environment.
