About Privett

The Privett Academy is a fully accredited diploma-granting institution grades 6-12.

Privett’s academic model is rooted in teaching developmentally appropriate skills that are necessary for the student to achieve success at a higher level of learning.

Our philosophy lies in the belief that most learning occurs when it is interesting and fulfilling. Our teachers strive to help students enjoy learning by making it relevant and exciting.

Helping students develop and maintain a positive self image and confidence is our goal.

The Privett Academy provides a small school environment as well as a small class size. The academy is committed to never exceeding ten students in a class. The focus on personalized education affords students the means for developing self-direction, motivation, and focus.

Privett provides a necessary alternative for students who are seeking a unique middle and high school educational experience.

At Privett, your student will develop the skills, attitudes, and habits needed to succeed in school...and in life. Privett’s personalized approach to learning can work for your student; schedule a visit to see!

Personalized Learning

Research shows that students learn best in an environment where they feel safe and supported. At Privett, our classes are personalized and designed to meet the needs of the individual student. 

Our teachers are thoughtful, caring, and intelligent. Teachers take time to get to know your student, and tailor the curriculum to meet the needs of the student. Unlike a traditional school, we can move faster or slower depending on what is required by your student.

Regular Progress Reports

Our teachers send out weekly progress reports to help you track student progress. You can expect to be up-to-date with what is happening in the classroom!

Flexible Scheduling

Privett makes every effort to work with students’ busy schedules. We have teachers who are available all day and most evenings. We appreciate the needs of busy families like yours and will work to fit into your schedule.
