At Columbia Academy, our mission is to cultivate successful learning opportunities that allow every student to become a responsible, valuable member of his or her community.
Our unique philosophy of focusing on individuals allows us to develop each student’s greatest potential and keep him or her engaged in a diverse, supportive environment. We include families and the community in our educational process to give our students the fullest possible range of stimulating environments, and nurture a cycle of feedback that leaves no educational gap uncovered.
We provide an unparalleled customized curriculum that challenges children in new and critical ways, developing each child’s creativity and analytical skills, while also encouraging a love of learning and a hunger to explore new ground. Our students develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and abstract cognitive skills that heighten their adaptability in a safe, respectful, supportive environment. The challenges and successes they face will earn them lifelong confidence and self-esteem that will allow them to face any obstacle, and find a truer path to contentment and success.
Originally founded in 1991, we’ve spent more than 25 years giving our students the challenging, creative environments they need to become happy, successful adults.
Starting with only one location, we expanded one facility at a time to reach the five locations—one Elementary/Middle School, and four Preschools—we proudly operate today, with the most recent Maple Lawn location opening in 2008.
We constantly update our furnishings and technology to give our students the safest, most modern environment in which to grow, and as such we are always changing—always striving for more. Join us, and become a part of our history as we continue to grow as one of the finest, most qualified private schools in the nation.
