October 29, 2020

We know that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents will ever make. At Columbia Academy, you will find a unique, safe environment where individual attention and caring teachers help create happy children, and families who are confident in their child’s experience. Our research-based curriculum reinforces our mission to provide children with educational tools and experiences that enhance the development, learning, and character of each individual.

Check out our top 10 reasons why we are the right fit for your family!

  1. Our infants and toddlers remain with the same caregivers for the first 2 years until they move up to our K-Prep2 program.
  2. Our teachers and staff are trained in Health and Safety, First Aid/CPR, and COVID-19 Protocols, and receive ongoing professional development throughout the year.

  7. Our preschool teachers build strong academic foundations that are essential in challenging young minds to grow, offering individualized attention and instruction.
