About Us


Potentia Academy is a private school dedicated to providing a high quality education to children with special learning needs. Potentia offers a safe and nurturing environment in which students can be challenged to reach their full learning potential.

When students first come to our school, they are typically two to four years behind their age appropriate grade level, particularly in reading skills and mathematics. Utilizing specialized curricula designed to address deficiencies in reading and math, our teachers work to, where possible, bring students up to grade level.

A key aspect of our approach is our commitment to small class sizes, which allows our teachers to insure that each student receives maximum attention. Our typical class consists of eight to ten students with an upper limit of twelve.

Potentia Academy awards both regular education and special education high school diplomas. We currently accept students in grades five through twelve.
