Phoenix Academy exists to educate and inspire students with learning differences to realize their full academic potential. It fulfills its mission by using a phonics-based education model and focuses on reading, spelling, writing and math. Most Phoenix Academy students are one or more school years behind in reading and/or math, so addressing each child’s individual learning style and needs is paramount, as is providing a nurturing learning community.
