Our mission, at Wilcox Academy, is to provide a quality education for our students in a nurturing, non-threatening, positive, and well-disciplined learning environment. We will strive to provide our students with opportunities to meet individual needs and to provide learning experiences that encourage growth in areas of development. We will work with students, parents, and the community to provide a student-focused and relevant curriculum. Our students will become responsible, respectful, life-long learners who are able to meet the challenges of a demanding society.


Our Beliefs:

- Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.

- The commitment to continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-motivated, life-long learners.

- A student's self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff.

- Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission.

- Student learning is chief priority in the school.

- Exceptional students require special services and resources.

- A safe and physically comfortable learning environment promotes student learning.
