I’ve never been a fan of horse racing, but I will admit to finding the highlights of the end of a big race on sports TV pretty exciting.

It’s the same with an end to the school year.  Schools are in the home stretch of the academic year, looking to finish with the same energy that fueled the start of the year.

For many families, this is the point in the year where the finish line seems much further away than it really is.  When students aren’t experiencing success in school, it wears on them and their families.  As the year progresses, this weight gets even heavier.

Here at The YMCA Academy, we define ourselves by what a great fit we are for students and their families.  To be a teenager with a learning disability, facing the prospect of another year at a school that isn’t a good fit, is a very tough situation.  I invite you to contact me to discuss what we can do for you and your teen.

I would also like to remind you that the fee-payment policy at The Academy fits the spirit of fee-paying at the YMCA: we absolutely make it possible for mission-appropriate students to attend our school. We will not turn away any student who is a great fit on financial grounds. You have my promise on this.
