Welcome to LIFT Educational Academy!

Admission Requirements

LIFT Educational Academy accepts students 1st through 12th grade who are struggling in traditional learning environments. As experts in the field of psychology and education, LEA is prepared to consider all applications for children with ADHD, Dyslexia, high functioning ASD, and those with Learning Disorders. However, we currently do not have placement for students with a history of behavioral challenges.

LEA’s admission process requires a completed student application, parent and student interview, and a recent psycho-educational evaluation by a licensed psychologist.

Why is this needed? A psychoeducational evaluation tells us where the cognitive deficiencies are and allows us to design and customize your child’s individual curriculum and target the areas most needing correction and strengthening. It also allows us to measure real results and achievements. You can provide your own psychoeducational evaluation or we can administer one for you.

Admissions Process

    The purpose of the application is to provide us with relevant information to better understand the needs of your child, ensure that LEA has the appropriate resources and staffing to serve you, and address those needs in our discussion together.

General Info

Information about LIFT Educational Academy

Step-Up-For-Student’s Gardiner Scholarship

Step Up For Students is one of two nonprofits administering school choice scholarship programs in Florida. The Gardiner Scholarship program is an “education savings account” program for children with special needs. The program was passed in 2014 with a budget of $18 million. Today it serves more than 10,000 students with a budget of over $100 million. The scholarship program allows children with certain disabilities to have access to special accounts that can be used to pay for private school tuition, fees, textbooks, curriculum, tutoring, therapies, educational technologies and more. Unspent money rolls over from year to year and can be saved for college. The money returns to the state if the student returns to public school full-time, moves out of the state, or has been a non-full-time student for three years.

Your Tuition Solution Loans

Education loans are available through Your Tuition Solution, to be paid back through monthly payments at reasonable interest rates. This option allows greater flexibility in the repayment plan and lowers monthly payments by allowing tuition costs to be repaid over a longer term. Should you choose to continue at LiFT Educational Academy for multiple years, Your Tuition Solution will incorporate future enrollments into the loan repayment terms.

Although our learning environment is fun and playful, our students work hard all day at school.

We put their brains through an intense workout and believe in the importance of proper brain recovery. We do give limited homework assignments from time to time. We will keep homework to a minimal and allow the students to enjoy the late afternoons and evenings with their families and friends the way children are supposed to.
