At Balfour Academy we create a family atmosphere of mutual support and trust. Positive reinforcement is used to encourage behaviors that contribute to individual growth, while problems are dealt with immediately as they arise. Our summer courses are designed to increase motivations as well as to develop basics skills. Leadership and athletic skills are developed in the afternoon sports program. Field trips serve as an enjoyable reward for working and as a time for the entire student body and faculty bond. In all our activities we seek to fulfill our motto, “Striving for Excellence.”
