Dear Families,

Plato Academy Clearwater has such an abounding tradition of excellent education. We will focus on the mastery of the Florida Standards, data-driven instruction, character education, and we will provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase every student’s achievement. All of us at Plato Academy Clearwater will provide academic experiences for our students that are meaningful, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.

It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be here! This attitude empowers us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. Please feel free to call or email me to set an appointment to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year as I do welcome and value your input.

I look forward to partnering with you as a team to help each and every student at Plato Academy Clearwater meets his or her goals and has a successful school year!


Mr. Adam Beard, M.Ed.
