Welcome Letter – The Excellence Academy

Welcome Letter


Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we begin the first school year of The Excellence Academy, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. Against a Christian Education backdrop, The Excellence Academy sets high academic expectations for each student and is committed to support excellent academic achievement through system implementation of unique learning centers.

As teaching and learning changes to meet the complexities of educating students, it becomes more and more apparent that individuals likely reach their potential when empowered with innovative, scholarly, and decision-making tools that enable them academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. The Excellence Academy team takes confidence in the idea that all of us – school and community – in an extended family and faith environment, will maximize our student success.

We invite you to remain an active participant and interactive partner with The Excellence Academy Learning Centers. Whether you become a classroom volunteer, special event participant, or are interested in starting a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), we need for you to be involved. Research shows that parent participation in the life of a child’s school positively correlates with the student’s academic success.

Kindly familiarize yourself with our website and learn about the opportunities and resources available to Academy students and their family. We believe that, in their years with us, our students become scholars and champions in this globally competitive world!

Our inaugural school year will be preeminent! We expect that every initiative will be groundbreaking – Academy staff performance, laudable, and the community . . . all the better for it!

In the Spirit of Excellence, our Academy Team will ensure a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family. As our partner for Excellence, you can always hold us to that!


Dr. Valda L. Slack

Head of Schools
