Quality Education in Private School, Course for Credit, and Tutoring

The Privett Academy

A Customized Approach to Learning

By taking one or more classes at Privett, students have access to personalized instruction and undivided attention that cannot be duplicated in a traditional school setting. Students actively participate in their education and instructors adapt and modify the curriculum to suit the needs and goals of individual students. Student schedules are designed with existing time commitments in mind to aide in dual enrollment situations. We would be happy to discuss options that could work for your student.

Private School

The private school at The Privett Academy is designed to meet the individual needs of students and to be flexible enough for students to take core classes (language arts, social studies, science, math, and foreign language) while taking advantage of local resources (public schools, local agencies, organizations, and clubs) for electives, sports, and enrichment. Classes can be designed to meet a specific student’s needs, no matter how complex or unique the situation. A dedicated team of teachers will help students actively participate in their learning and achievement of academic goals.

Course for Credit

We provide students with another avenue for achieving academic success. The Privett Academy offers course credit for a variety of classes including core courses and several elective options that are as rigorous and challenging as any traditional school setting but with the benefits of a small group setting. Our classes are designed with each student's best interest in mind and can be catered to those individual needs.
