The Fletcher Academy is North Carolina’s oldest school dedicated solely to students with learning differences. We have served hundreds of families by focusing on students’ abilities. Individualized curriculum, consistent structure and processes, and exceptionally small class sizes allow our stellar faculty to bring out the best in students. At TFA, we partner with students, to BELIEVE in themselves, to ACHIEVE their goals, to EXPLORE their world, and to SOAR to their potential.
Our Core Values
Believe in yourself.
Every student has unique gifts and talents to share; they grow to become self-reliant, confident, can-do people.
Do your best.
We offer a unique learning environment where students can reach their potential and achieve their academic, athletic, artistic and social-emotional goals.
Our students are curious learners who explore the world and discover original ways to think and communicate their ideas.
Inspire the world.
The contributions our students make are a source of constant inspiration; they treat each new day as an opportunity to make the world a better place.

We provide students with a strong academic curriculum that includes multi-sensory teaching methods delivered in small class settings. Students at TFA are able to develop learning styles consistent with the strengths of their own minds through consistent processes and careful observation.
Prior to each school year, we individually prepare each students’ course schedule to match their ability level and goals.
Our students thrive here because each day is filled with activities and social connections that provide a warm and tight-knit community. Because of our highly structured environment, we are able to help each student integrate extra-curricular activities and social skills development, ensuring they develop a positive sense of responsibility.
We help students develop goals, which are reinforced through daily communication with families. All activities are provided with the same careful design as our tailored academic programs. We pride ourselves in our ability to nurture the whole child with a whole school environment.
