Cortona Academy is the epitome of a great school. The classes are tailored to the needs of the students, and the teachers give them methods that they will use to be successful in College. My child has ADHD, and although very smart, he was failing in the other school he used to attend. Cortona Academy allowed him to get back on track, to develop method in a supportive and understanding environment. The cost is equal to most private schools in the area, but the investment is worth every penny! Before Cortona, my child was anxious and thought that he didn't have a future. In addition to a great education, Cortona Academy gave him back hope in his future!

Cortona Academy was a great place to go to school. I graduated from Cortona a few years ago after deciding to leave the public school system in my area. That school was huge and all the teachers seemed more concerned with the SOL scores than with actually teaching us. I wanted to get into a good college and my parents wanted to see me more involved and motivated. We decided on Cortona Academy. The teachers were welcoming and warm, and highly intelligent compared with the public school teachers.

My GPA went way up, and I was accepted into several good schools that offered scholarships. I'm extremely grateful to Cortona Academy. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a real education in the Northern Virginia area.
Cortona Academy is a wonderful school for our son. The quality of his classes, teachers and friends is superb! I cannot say enough good things about Cortona. My husband and I are beyond pleased with the education and opportunities the school is giving our son. Thank you Cortona!
