Royal Academy Education is not your typical private school. It is a school where you as a parent/tutor/student take charge of the education process. Students are provided the opportunity to grow and develop through many avenues in order to be equipped to enter “the world” with a love of learning.

We held a day-long meeting hearing from these professionals how best to make RAE a better school and business, and how best to move forward, making short and long term goals. Thank you to all of them for giving us a weekend of their time and insights. We feel refreshed and excited about our future.

Royal Academy Education is announcing another great leap forward; the formulation of a Scholarship Fund! In honor of the founders, the scholarship fund has been set up in the name of The Donald B. and Shirley M.R. Minster Founders Scholarship.

“This is a 501(c)(3) corporation organized exclusively for the charitable and educational purposes of Royal Academy Education Graduates and their future endeavors”; says Penny Cote, Executive Director. “The financial growth of the scholarship fund, selection standards, and distribution will be administered through the Royal Academy Education Advisory Council”.
