Why Choose

Plato Academy

“The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference.”

– Aristotle
Greek Philosopher

Fundamental Approach

Plato Academy Schools is is a group of 9 Charter Schools governed by an independent board.  As such, Plato has the ability to set its own rules, policies, procedures, and curriculum. Our policies mirror those of area fundamental schools that include adherence to a strict discipline policy, mandatory uniforms, parent involvement, and individualized, optimum classroom instruction.


Plato Academy follows the Florida Standards and supplements with rigorous materials which offer meaningful experiences that help to develop the whole child. The curriculum’s sequence is rational, with more complex ideas building on simpler ones, respecting each student’s developmental levels and prior learning. Teachers and students are accountable for all state and local assessments in addition to internal formal and informal assessments and observations.

The Whole Child

Students at Plato Academy are taught with a Whole Child Approach. They aren’t only molded to think in the classroom but they are also guided in developing in all areas of life. There is guidance towards acquiring skills in art, music, sports, and a sense of community with others. We strive to help each child become a well-rounded person.

Parent Involvement

Children enjoy greater success in school when the adults they admire most take an interest in their education. Our students’ parents are encouraged to commit to 30 volunteer hours each year for the school. These hours foster closer relationships and ensure a more secure learning environment.

Family Values

We believe that supporting family values is paramount. Through our Character Education Program students learn the importance of values like respect, honesty, and kindness to name a few. In today’s forever evolving world, there are many diverse ways to define a family, but they all have one common idea: Caring and Commitment to each students’ success.

Firm Discipline

At Plato Academy, we believe appropriate student behavior will ensure uninterrupted teaching and encourage an atmosphere conducive to learning. The school offers an enriched disruption-free environment through optimum instruction, support and encouragement.

How Plato Compares to Other Schools

Plato Academy follows the principle of effective learning: the learner’s ability to understand and interact with what is being presented. The school is designed for students with potential for creativity, emotional growth, and leadership. Advanced students have opportunities to learn at an accelerated pace.

Charter schools are autonomous, innovative public schools demonstrating a record of higher student achievement and greater accountability for results.

Public Schools

At Plato, the students are not just another number as in most public schools. The small school and class sizes create a family environment that affords individualized attention and care. At Plato, teaching time is maximized as disruptions are minimized. We offer additional instruction in Greek, music, and art.

Private Schools

Unlike private schools, Plato is highly accountable for its performance to the local school district and Florida Department of Education. In contrast to most private schools, all of Plato’s teachers are certified and are paid at the highest competitive level.
