Weaver Academy is the most amazing school and I am so lucky to have attended it! My home school is Grimsley, but I was allowed to attend Weaver full-time as a CTE student. In my years at Weaver, I was able to take 14 computer science classes! I feel like I am very prepared to attend college as well as I have an insight into what I want to study at college. The classes were small and the teachers very knowledgeable! The teachers clearly enjoy what they teach as well as working with students. The principle runs a tight ship that allows students and teachers to blend well together.

I love Weaver Academy. The academics are excellent and challenging. Weaver allows self expression and supports individuality which I love. It allows students to focus in particular areas of interest which can help them choose a career path. The energy of the school is always positive and uplifting and it is a great place to learn new things!
I have been a student at Weaver Academy for the last three years, since my sophomore year of high school. Since attending Weaver, I have really grown to love and appreciate the diversity within the student body. Here at Weaver, I've realized that each individual student has had the ability to shamelessly express themselves and that is because of the diversity we aim for here at Weaver Academy. I really can say that if I had a choice to change anything about Weaver Academy, I wouldn't choose to change a thing .
