Why Smaller is Better
At The Wilson Academy, our small environment encourages more students to build relationships with each other because everyone truly has the chance make an impact. The classroom benefits are easy to see, as we are able to offer our students more one-to-one attention than larger schools can. We have also had students who’ve earned college scholarships for extracurricular activities, whereas they would’ve been overlooked or even cut from the team at a larger school. No one is just a number at The Wilson Academy.
The simple reality is that it can be difficult for large schools to maintain a safe, positive environment. At The Wilson Academy, our classes do not exceed twenty students; so our classes are very productive. But more significant is the type of student a school has. Headmaster Wilson interviews EVERY student before admission to The Wilson Academy to ensure your child is surrounded by like-minded, education-focused students. We do not accept students who have been expelled, or have poor behavioral histories.
The College Advantage
At the typical high school, the counselor is primarily responsible for your child’s college process. But counselors at large schools are responsible for hundreds of students, many of which will graduate without ever even meeting the counselor. At The Wilson Academy, our headmaster works directly with the students and parents; so, parents of our students can rest assured that their child’s college needs have been given the attention they deserve.
