Excel Middle Years Academy

Excel Middle Years Academy offers an accelerated middle grade school for students looking for a smaller, more personal setting, intensely focused on elevating social skills, emotional wellness, and academic success.

Our school aims to succeed by developing meaningful relationships with each student to understand their individual needs, challenges, and strengths. From there, we provide care, support, and counseling to address the challenges students are faced with outside of school, helping them to develop coping and problem-solving skills and guiding them on how to identify and implement solutions to help them focus on learning.

Excel Middle Years Academy utilizes staff and resources in flexible ways that respond to student needs and prepare them for the high school selection process by equipping them with the skills required for middle and high school success. When students feel safe, secure, protected, and valued, they become empowered to take charge of their education and future and can begin to fulfill their learning potential.
