Academics

Overview

KORE Academy is an independent school currently serving students in grades K-12 who learn differently. Our program is highly structured to provide individualized instruction geared to meet each student’s needs. Many of our students arrive frustrated from a lack of success in a traditional school setting. Within a short time, most students are reinvigorated, both academically and socially. This renewed confidence enables students to exceed expectations!

Grade/Class Size

KORE Academy offers blended grade levels in the following areas: Primary, Intermediate, Middle, and High School. Students are grouped according to grade level and ability. Our emphasis is on small classes, Individual Education Plans, and a map to success for each individual child.
