Our rising junior will be entering their 14th year at Elgin Academy, having attended since pre-K. That alone speaks volumes - we've offered our child the opportunity to change schools at lower school, middle school, and high school entrance points. There was no question he wanted to stay. Our child is happy, challenged, and displays growing confidence each year. EA sets the kids up for success by the ready accessibility of the teachers, the challenging curriculum, and approaching each student in a holistic manner. I was especially impressed with how my child's teachers were able to successfully pivot their curriculum to live-streaming during our first go-round with Covid-19 remote learning. They didn't miss a beat; classes were live, with instructors and students fully participating. The commitment of the Elgin Academy teachers and staff are evident across the board. If you're looking for a school that truly cares about your child and their success, check out EA!

We are in our 7th year at Elgin Academy and continue to highly recommend this great school to all our family and friends! My daughter really loves all the specialty classes, but especially the outstanding Music, Art and theater programs. The relatively smaller class sizes and great diversity provides just the right balance for her, always stressing tolerance and compassion. Every teacher is an all-star and always gets to know everything about our daughter. The involved parent community is always generous and supportive. It feels great to know we have found the right place that will help her develop and be the best version of herself all the way through high school!
We were looking around for a good school for a while and when we visited Elgin Academy the first time we knew it was the one. The friendly admissions director brought us around unannounced to various classrooms and let us ask teachers and students any questions we wanted. I had never in my life seen students and teachers so enthusiastic to share what they were learning! Of course we wanted that for our daughter so we enrolled her immediately and never looked back. So far it has been an amazing experience compared to her previous school and we couldn't be happier.
