I have been teaching at Self Development for five years now and have loved every minute of it. The high level of academics expected from our students is one of the defining features here. The students work at 1-2 years above grade level in all subjects with a continuous review of the basics at grade level to make sure there are no gaps in their learning. This means as a teacher that I am able to teach works like To Kill a Mockingbird or Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. However, the best aspect of this school is the community that we have built. In the middle school, the teachers know all of the students and work with the child as a whole to make sure they have the support that they need. This is an amazing school and I love teaching here!

My name is Nate, and I have been attending Self Development for nine years of my life (Preschool-8th grade). Let me just say... I have loved every minute of it. The students are kind, the teachers know what they are doing and strive to help you, and the programs have more than prepared me for the road ahead. I learned ALGEBRA II and started PRE-CALCULUS in only 8th grade. Thank you, Self Development Academy, for all that you have done in my life.
Self Development Academy (SDA) provides an exceptional academic foundation and fosters whole child development. My daughter began attending SDA with Kindergarten. She was a timid child, barely speaking throughout her Kindergarten year. The staff and teachers worked with and encouraged my daughter, and over the years her confidence grew and grew. She participated in class activities and afterschool clubs. Her academic skills developed as well. She transitioned from SDA successfully, and is now taking Honors classes. She was accepted to NJHS and made the Dance Team. I cannot thank the SDA staff and teachers enough for the providing a strong academic foundation and the care they took in helping my daughter develop her organizational and study skills and overall character.
