“Our daughter often tells us, 'Da Vinci is perfect for me.' She has a love for learning and is surrounded by other kids who are just like her. She has also loved being involved in the extracurricular activities like Music and Theater Club, Band, and Robotics. We couldn't imagine sending her anywhere else; Da Vinci really is the perfect school for her.” - DVA Parent
“My son proudly asserts that Da Vinci Academy is absolutely the right place for him. After years of not having his academic needs recognized or met in the public school system and enduring the negative consequences of that, he is thriving and happy again about going to school.” - DVA Parent
