On Monday, November 19th The YMCA Academy was featured on Global TV’s ‘Making a Difference’. The host Susan Hay spent several hours at the Academy in order to experience student life and gain an understanding of our individualized, student focused approach to education. The crew was on site for several hours observing classes (including some fun science experiments!), mindfulness circles, a physical education lesson our state of the art recreation facilities, as well as conducting interviews with our Head of School Don Adams, Central Y Vice President Mehdi Zobeiry and an Academy student who shared his experience of joining The YMCA Academy.
We were thrilled to have Susan Hay and her crew join us in support of our efforts to increase public awareness of learning style differences, learning disabilities and the services available to help young people flourish and succeed.
