21st Century Cutting Edge Education

Since 2008, Washington Academy has been successfully transitioning 1 in 5 students back to an LRE program in-district. Starting in 2015 Washington Academy has leaped into the lead in specialized out-of-district programs. Students in grade Kindergarten through 4th grade have transitioned back to district, on average, within three years from placement.


Our Middle School students are exposed to the most innovative technology available in the world. Our 8th graders are all enrolled in the "High School Prep" program, which accelerates the academic pace, the rigor of the classroom and introduces multiple content specialist teachers to simulate a high school experience, while using the same hi-tech computers as 30 NFL franchises.


At the High School Level, our students receive targeted skills development, which will lead to more college enrollment and a higher rate of employment. No other private school teaches students entry-level, hi-tech skills in the fields of marketing, public relations, film management and production, business management, and sales.

Washington Academy was named a School of Excellence by NASET (The National Association of Special Education Teachers) in 2015, the fifth straight year.  NASET recognizes schools that meet the rigorous standards of special education, and provide a therapeutic environment for children.
