Welcome! We are so glad you are interested in learning more about Centennial Academy. It is, no doubt, a big decision to find a school that is the best fit for your child and your family.
A Centennial Academy education spans the most crucial years in a child’s development, from Kindergarten through eighth grade. By embracing a STEAM-centered curriculum and Project-Based Learning Environment, our scholars are well-prepared for life beyond Centennial’s walls, first in high school, then in college and beyond.
To incorporate a whole-child approach, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is embedded in every aspect of learning at Centennial Academy.
