Welcome to Orel Private Academy

Orel Private Academy is a community and children are our center. It is with the youngest children that we have the greatest opportunity to develop social and emotional literacy as we celebrate each child’s uniqueness and special contributions. We are all charged with creating an environment that is designed to nurture each child’s social, emotional, academic, and physical development. We want to encourage our children to become dreamers and risk-takers. To become independent and life-long learners as we believe in the ability of education to change the future, to move the planet towards a world of progress, harmony and wisdom. For us, a good education means something that leads to the creation of a fully-developed individual: mature, erudite, strong, and kind. This is the vision towards which Orel Private Academy has been striving continuously throughout its existence.

The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.

Our hope as Orel Private Academy is that our children will learn and grow in ways that let them be all that they can and all that they wish to be. We are excited to be a part of the foundation that will allow the children to become problem-solvers and creative learners and to blossom into giving and caring members of a larger community. At Orel Private Academy, we want to model a warm and safe place where taking risk, being bold and striving for the best; will be prompted and encouraged, and where mistakes will be accepted and used as an opportunity to mould, learn and grow.

This site is created to help existing and prospective parents understand our concept of education and our methodology of realizing this concept. We encourage you to go through the pages of this site carefully and hope that you shall find it useful, informative and inspiring.
