Our Philosophy... 

Independence Academy recognizes that all children are unique; that each learns in a different style and at a different pace. We strive to meet the individual needs of every student through a variety of programs and educational techniques designed to prepare the child for success.

We are dedicated to providing a learning environment that fosters academic, social and emotional growth. We utilize a team approach to implement our fully integrated curriculum, and to demonstrate the relevance of each subject. The curriculum is infused with the arts—drawing, painting, music—thus creating a cultural environment where each child thrives.
