“My father always said that the best thing you do for your children is to give them an education. I looked for 2 years and visited 15 schools and I haven’t found anywhere else in South Florida a school that offers everything that I can find here. They have mindfulness every day, robotics, coding and a sports program that links to brain development. I work in HR and there are so many studies that show that kids that practice mindfulness have less anxiety, less depression and better health. They are doing that for our children. Right now we’re lucky to get in and I know there will soon be a waiting list.”

“Centner Academy is a top tier school. I’m really proud that I discovered it and that my daughter is part of this big family and this uniqueness. I’m thrilled we finally have in Miami a full immersion school. My daughter now sings in Mandarin at home. She is loving the language and also she tells me how great she is learning through singing and playing and that’s what makes the difference. I speak four languages. In my work experience, it has definitely helped and opened my career path. I can only say good things about the school. We all know the curriculum is important and sports too; however the emotional aspect is really important and often not taught in school. It is key for their development and their life in general. They are teaching us important lessons of life. It’s growth also for the families and you don’t find that anywhere else.”

Nathalie Vrangos


“Centner Academy has been magical and transformational for my son. Simon's curiosity, creative soul, passion for learning and kindness is nourished daily. During his first year at Centner, I have seen my son flourish into his best self emotionally, socially and academically. I am inspired by Center's vision to create whole human beings and nurture a generation of thinkers and changemakers, while instilling in their students the core principles for success in life: Happiness, Diversity, Belonging, Potential, Purpose and Creativity”
