About Us

Our Mission

Ivy Bound Academy’s vision is to develop life-long learners with a strong foundation in the core subjects, extensive computer skills, and the confidence to pursue their goals and aspirations. We determine to perpetuate an atmosphere for advanced learning by targeting problem areas and helping our students overcome individual obstacles.

Our Philosophy

Ivy Bound’s philosophy is that a student must feel at ease in their surroundings, before they can fully take advantage of their academic environment. As a result, we focus on three key concepts to facilitate the development of a superior educational program ensuring that all of our students experience success. With an emphasis on a safe and nurturing environment, advanced academics, and extensive training in technology, we will enable our students to reach their full potential.

In pursuing this goal, Ivy Bound has developed a strategic plan that consists of specific guidelines and tactics geared to support our students in becoming computer competent in a technology driven world.  We take on the responsibility of enforcing a higher education that involves critical and analytical thinking while developing problem solving skills in a hands-on learning environment.   We focus on clear writing, deducing and analyzing abilities which are made less complex to understand through our intensive technology schedule.

Ivy Bound Academy understands that learning and growing is a constant process, and we are here to support each child in the exploration of their talents and abilities.  Providing after school study programs and extra-curricular activities geared towards individual interests and needs are part of instilling values of self-worth, confidence, and an overall positive way of thinking.  Our approach is encouraging, imaginative and reinforced through expert instruction and consistent communication to form a meaningful higher education.
