Cultivating Leaders
with Heart

At America’s Happiest School!


Social emotional learning is infused throughout cross-curricular instruction. A school family culture is built through consistent modeling of routines, rituals and structures. The school family increases connections between adults and children at all levels, ensuring optimal development and learning for all.

Elementary School

The 1st through 5th grade experience ensures that every student is both challenged and supported, with leveled learning across subject areas.

Middle School

Middle Schoolers have tremendous freedom of choice, with every student in 6th to 8th grade following a different schedule. Students have a full day of electives every week, with dozens of electives to choose.

High School

The High School program is opening in Fall 2022, giving students opportunities to travel globally for community service, pursue and create their passions, and participate in a global sports development program for student athletes.

Helping Your Child Bee All They Can Bee

At Centner Academy we beelieve that students learn best when using their minds to solve problems, create solutions, and collaborate with peers to make the world a better place.

We beelieve that every student, every teacher, every parent, and every leader has an ethical imperative on this planet to pursue learning and growth in every activity of our lives.

Because our whole community is dedicated to being better for our world, we love learning, embrace mistakes as opportunities to grow, and challenge ourselves to be both loving and candid in our relationships with one another.
