Educational Programs

Teachers and staff work with students to reach their individual educational potential.

To that end, we teach our own, high-tech study and organizational techniques ( HTS-3) in all courses in order to ensure high school and future college success.

These unique, proven processing and retrieval learning techniques reduce student stress in studying, reduce homework time, and improve test taking and writing skills

“The idea is simple. Just help them when they make mistakes, allow them time to develop their own interests and guide them toward reaching their dreams. There is no failure here. This class of 2021 proves that potential-based education actually works.” Sharon Peruzzi Strauchs Director and Founder, Cortona Academy
