There's a Unique Path to Success for Every Child

We'll help you find it.

Involved Parents

Parental involvement = student engagement.
We make sure parents are involved in the learning community.

Practical Learning

We're not interested in teaching students to pass tests. We're interested in teaching students to think for themselves.

Relevant Technologies

We make sure students have the tools they need to be prepared for a rapidly changing world.

Every child learns differently, and too often schools don't know how to handle it. We do.

Your child deserves a fair shot at success. Period.

Find your child's unique path to success.

At Purdy Schools, we know that you want your child to learn how to be successful in life. In order to do that, they need to find their unique path to success. The problem is, every child's needs are different, and too often schools can't account for that. That can leave parents feeling anxious and inadequate. We believe your child deserves a chance to be successful in life, no matter their needs. The world is changing faster than ever, and you can't help but ask, "Will my kids be ready?"

Our passion is to make sure they are. We know that it will take dynamic and individualized learning opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom, to prepare them to achieve those goals when they leave school.

Make certain your child is prepared to succeed in life. Become an Eagle.
