Here are a few of our Success Stories
June 2013 saw the first class graduate from The Roberts Academy and, since then, we have been delighted to receive positive feedback from parents of students who are enjoying success in their new schools.
“After attending The Roberts Academy for three years, Rachel's transition into 7th grade was a tremendous success both socially and academically. She received a recognition for honors and most recently for high honors in 7th grade. We feel that The Roberts Academy gave her the foundation for her success.” — Valerie & Dan Kilbourne, parents of a recent graduate
“Life after The Roberts Academy? Hard, tough, rewarding, and exciting! He struggled because of dyslexia, but he was successful because of The Roberts Academy.” — Michelle Lindsey, parent of a recent graduate
“Sarah graduated from The Roberts Academy in June 2013. She had a smooth transition to her new school and has really thrived. She looks forward to going to school and has earned Honor Roll twice this year. Her accomplishments have been outstanding and I truly appreciate the support and instruction she received at The Roberts Academy. Her experiences at Roberts have helped achieve so much this year and I know it will continue in the future.” — Lisa South, parent of a recent graduate
Driving by The Roberts Academy my son always says, "I love that place; it changed my life!" The Roberts Academy offered him specialized education that not only improved his reading ability, but also gave him the confidence to become a lifetime achiever in academics. After his transition from The Roberts Academy, Trey has flourished in science and academics. He won third place in the state of Florida for his biochemistry project studying the effects of light on microscopic organisms. The Roberts Academy helped our family realize that dyslexia does not have to limit a child, but can actually be the gateway to new opportunities. -Tracy Russell, parent of a recent graduate

The Roberts Academy Hosts Pam Tebow for Mother's Day Lunch
The Roberts Academy celebrated Mother's Day by hosting famous mom and inspirational speaker Pam Tebow at a Mother's Day Lunch on Wednesday, May 7. Mrs. Tebow spent many years working with her husband as a missionary in the Philippines. She homeschooled her five children, including her youngest-- Heisman-trophy-winning Florida Gator Tim Tebow--who struggled with dyslexia. Mrs. Tebow spoke eloquently from the heart, recounting how the support of her tight-knit brood and her faith helped her turn challenges into opportunities.
