Meet Conor, An American Academy Alumni


After leaving a premier LD school in NYC and moving to Palm Beach County 6 years ago, my biggest fear was my son’s education. After Conor was diagnosed with a Central Processing Disorder at a young age, finding the right learning environment for him has always been my number one priority. Luckily, we found the American Academy program at American Heritage School, and I could not have been more pleased.

The Academy program is everything I was looking for in an upper school. It is a true bridge program offering a challenging, college preparatory curriculum and experience while promoting individualized success through multisensory learning environments, smaller class sizes, individualized attention, and all with some of the best teachers and administrators I have ever seen. Each and every one of them has been, and continues to be, fully vested in Conor’s success.

Now a junior in the Academy program, Conor has surpassed all of my expectations, hopes, and dreams. He is a member of the National Honor Society, RHO KAPPA, Quill and Scroll, the 909 Live Production Team, and he is the recipient of some of the highest academic and leadership honors at the school. Conor is a confident, bright, creative, and articulate young man who sees a very promising future for himself. We both owe a great deal of gratitude to the school, as it would not have been possible without their commitment to him.

"As an educator and a parent I am thrilled with the quality education my daughter received in the Academy program. She thrived academically and was also involved in many school extracurricular activities. She became a well rounded student who was well prepared for the challenges of college."
