Vanessa Coles Named Fortune Academy’s Next Head of School

On Friday, May 2, 2019, Fortune Academy announced Vanessa Coles as the next Head of School starting June 1, 2019. She will succeed Janet George, who established the school in 2002 with six students and grew it to 97 students today.



We are a comprehensive school dedicated to educating and equipping students with language learning differences to become competent and confident life-long learners. Located at the historical Fort Benjamin Harrison, Fortune Academy is an independent school for students in grades 1–12. Our school is designed for students with average to above average potential to learn but have yet to unlock their potential past their learning challenges. Our students process information differently than what is expected in a conventional classroom. They need a different approach to learning.


We embrace that difference.
