Late-Start Students…EVENTS!

Every September or October, a parent knows if their child’s school year is going to be yet another, stressful trauma for the child, and a disappointment for the parent.

Parents need to trust their instincts! It’s not too late to make a good decision and switch the child’s school...NOW! Even if students start late at Cortona Academy, they can still finish in June! AND, Cortona is still awarding partial and full scholarships!

At Cortona Academy, we’re changing and saving educations...and lives!
