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.
Caring deeply about our children is part of what makes us human. Yet the thing we call “parenting” is a surprisingly new invention. In the past thirty years, the concept of parenting and the multibillion-dollar industry surrounding it have transformed child care into obsessive, controlling, and goal-oriented labor intended to create a particular kind of child and therefore a particular kind of adult.
