Welcome to Florida Academy of Excellence

At Florida Academy of Excellence (FAE) our goal is to empower parents to educate their children. We believe that parents are the best decision makers for their children’s education. Education in your child’s best interest looks different for every family, and often it looks different for every child within every family. FAE desires to help you choose the best methods, curriculum, and mode of teaching and learning for each of your children so that each child will develop a love of learning, a desire to excel, and a determination to succeed in all areas of learning and life.

Authentic learning produces authentic results. For this reason, FAE does not participate in any type of standardized testing. However, you, as the decision maker for your child’s education, may choose to participate in standardized testing outside of FAE as part of your education plan.

We do not have a building; rather, all teaching and learning occurs in the home or in the location of the families’ choice. We do not prescribe a set curriculum, although we can make recommendations based on the families’ goals for their children’s education. Parents can choose to serve as their child’s teacher or they may choose from an endless number of other options, such as: reading, writing, enrolling in virtual school classes, take classes part time or full time, participate in co-ops, occupational therapies, behavioral therapy, equine therapy and education, dance, fine arts, performing arts, sports, travel, religious education, or any other activity that the parents deem educational.
