I wanted to let you know about our school, as we may be a resource for your family. We are a private school, located in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. Our mission is to provide a small school environment with an individualized and integrated curriculum, at a more affordable price. We want to reach families who feel this smaller, more personal, home-school type setting would benefit their child and their family. Structure and organization, joined with experiential approaches, field trips and cultural arts activities, make Kent Academy different. We educate gifted children and children with learning disabilities who are able to work in small group settings. We are not able to facilitate emotional or behavioral concerns, as students must be able to work in a multi-level setting with other children. If you have a child who would flourish in a smaller, more focused setting, then Kent Academy may be a great resource.
I grew up in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system. I taught for CMS, and other schools, and then owned and operated a tutoring business in the community. After earning a Master's Degree in Education, an EdS degree and PhD in Counseling and Counselor Education, I began my private counseling practice here in Charlotte. After twenty years in practice as an educational and family counselor, and a mother to three CMS students, I was drawn to create an alternative educational resource for this community.
I would love the opportunity to tell you more about our school. Please feel free to explore our website and call for further information or to schedule a visit.
