Cortona Academy Holds Final Events as Scholarship Deadline Nears

Cortona Academy in Northern Virginia is awarding 15 full and partial scholarships for incoming, full-time 7th – 11th graders for the 2016-17 school year.

Final events for prospective students and parents are scheduled for Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14. Since 1992 Cortona Academy has offered superior, cutting-edge, stress-free education. A record-breaking 100% of our graduates to receive merit-based college scholarships of up to $110,000! The deadline for Cortona scholarship applications is May 20th. Cortona’s 7th – 12th grade private education has been called one of the most successful, stress-free learning environments on the East Coast.

Cortona Academy prides itself in fostering a student’s personal journey aimed at future success. Unlike traditional schools with inflexible deadlines, massive memorization, and lecture-oriented classes, Cortona Academy focuses on creative thought powering intellectual endeavors. By supporting the individual’s intellectual freedom (in a manner that best suits learning styles and academic needs) along with a strong background in our renowned STEM + Arts curriculum, each student becomes “Self-Made.”

Excited, happy, motivated learners is what we all want for our children. As it turns out, in the past 25 years Cortona Academy has learned that this, too, is exactly what colleges want! THIS is the power of a Cortona Academy education.
