What Differentiates Royal Academy

Why choose Royal Academy?

An individualized learning plan for each student

We approach the development of an Individualized Learning Plan for each student as a collaborative team process. We involve all the key support individuals— from the student and parents, to the teachers, academic coaches, and counselors—together as a team, we create a unique plan for each and every child. The plan is designed to organize, and sequence your child’s curriculum and courses, while considering his or her own unique academic strengths and challenges, passions and dreams.

Some children are ready to move ahead in one subject, but need extra help in others.  Our Individualized Learning Plan establishes a strategy to help make the right choices and help each student reach their highest potential.

A Winning Educational Alternative

The traditional school experience doesn’t work for everyone.

Classes might move too fast or too slow. Course offerings or levels might be too limiting. Rigid scheduling can restrict the pursuit of athletics or other intense passion. Social pressures can be distracting, or debilitating if bullying is involved. For various reasons, many parents realize that the traditional school model just doesn’t fit their child.

We provide students with important choices

With an expansive curriculum of 125+ courses, we provide students important choices. We offer math, English, science, language, social studies, history, and a variety of rich elective courses in multiple levels—General, College Prep, Honors, and college-level Advanced Placement (AP) courses to meet the needs of diverse learners.

We specialize in providing independent learning programs for each of our students.  We invite you to learn more about the costs for each option and how they can be supplemented with additional services, by reviewing our enrollment options, or for more information, call us at 207-657-2800.

Why do families and students enroll at Royal Academy?

With students around the world, there are many reasons. Parents choose our school because their children are:

  • Gifted learners who seek greater academic challenges
  • Struggling academically and need more time to master concepts
  • Being bullied at school, or feel they don’t fit in
  • Easily distracted in a classroom, or have a learning issue or disability
  • Homebound, perhaps for medical reasons
  • Elite athletes training for competition or careers with rigorous travel schedules
  • Young performers, musicians, or artists, pursuing their dreams
  • Members of families who just want a more independent education

Unlocking the love of learning

Unlike other online curriculum providers, we never just scan a textbook and call it an online course. We thoroughly establish learning objectives and develop instructional online experiences carefully integrated with plenty of hands-on materials.

Our focus is to meet the learning needs of each particular child. We design curriculums that includes project learning, unit studies, independent research, field trips, and community learning and activities. We set up goals and timelines which allows students to move at their own pace through the year. The program remains dynamic and flexible. Progress is discussed and reviewed quarterly.

Parents choose our educational experience because it encourages and stimulates their children to strive for the best in all areas of academic life. Students enjoy Royal Academy because it gives them the opportunity to explore personal interest areas in-depth, the ability to travel, they enjoy one-on-one learning while developing self-discipline and time management skills throughout the academic year.

What parents and students are saying...

So very, VERY grateful

We are so VERY, VERY grateful for you and the Royal Academy because you made it possible for Jesse to actually enjoy school by adapting it to his needs and learning style – not to mention graduate! I really don’t think that we would have been able to drag him through public school!

Executive Director has an amazing gift!

My daughter had the privilege of having Mrs. Cote as a teacher during most of her Home school years. I have no doubt that this played a crucial role in her long term education. My daughter is thriving in ways that I believe would have never been possible without Mrs. Cote's unique knowledge and effort in preparing my daughter for her crucial college years. Penny has an amazing gift in how she understands each individual child and nurtures each student to bring out their very best. Anyone that has the privilege of having her as a teacher will be amazed at her abilities and passion. As a mom, I could never thank her enough for all she has done for my daughter!

My son is flourishing thanks to you

Not sure how I could ever say thank you enough for all the support and guidance you have given Franky for the past 10 years. Royal Academy has allowed him to grow and flourish in his own unique way. As a mother and a teacher, I see no substitute for this gift of freedom. You have changed the word by helping to shape these young inspiring students. Thank you for all that you have done and all that you continue to do.

Encouraged me to dream BIG

When I expressed an interest in archaeology Mrs. Cote connected me with professionals in the field and continually encouraged me to dream big. As I searched and applied for colleges she was an irreplaceable resource. The intensity of my courses prepared me very well for my undergraduate program. The passion with which she taught, enthused me with a love of learning. Through constant encouragement and diligence, Mrs. Cote demanded excellence which instilled in me a confidence to strive to be the best I could be. I still treasure the laughter, readings, and formational discussions that defined my high-school experience. Under her guidance I truly learned what it means to be a scholar.
