Our Core Principles


To provide the academic and emotional support necessary for a range of learners, including at-risk youth, reluctant learners, and motivated students wanting to improve their performance, to be successful in school.​


The Privett Academy provides a small school environment with personalized education to help students develop the skills, attitudes and habits needed to succeed in school and in life.


If students are provided motivational, organizational, and academic skills they will be more successful in school. Building self-confidence, esteem, and life skills will keep students in school and will create successful citizens after graduation.
