At CORE Academy we believe that every child has the right to a high quality education.  Like all Menta schools, CORE Academy’s, guiding principle is “we will never give up.” CORE is deeply committed to developing innovative strategies for ensuring that the children in our programs are not left behind.  We maintain high expectations for our students, in terms of both academic and social-emotional growth, countering the prevailing prejudices commonly found in the education of children with disabilities.   We understand the necessity of preparing students for success in post-secondary education, in careers, and as productive citizens of a changing 21st century world.  Similarly, we maintain high expectations for ourselves as educators, using data and the problem-solving process to continue to improve our program and ensure positive outcomes for all of our students.

The staff at CORE Academy are dedicated to seeing each child reaches their potential in becoming 3 C Ready- College Ready, Career Ready, and Citizenship Ready. Educational services are intended to meet both the developmental and individual learning needs of each student. Classrooms are designed to be active learning environments where young people have the opportunity to experience educational and behavioral success on a daily basis.
