Ivywood Classical Academy is a tuition-free public school academy that educates students using the virtues-based, content-rich, classical education tradition. The classical curriculum is time-tested, research-based and is proven to develop children into thoughtful, caring, educated, freethinking young adults. The curriculum emphasizes an education in the humanities, sciences, and arts and integrates the Latin language to promote depth in learning. Currently serving grades K-5, we will be adding a sixth grade in the fall of 2020/2021.
At Ivywood, your child is our priority. We treat each child as an individual and are vested in their success. At Ivywood, we are family.
