About Elgin Academy
About Elgin Academy

Why taking learning personally matters to your child.

As an intentionally small school, understanding the feel of Elgin Academy—our campus and our classrooms, yes, but primarily our people and our pedagogy—is vastly important to you as a prospective family.

Here, taking learning personally is more than a credo—it defines our promise to each and every student and family who calls EA home.

Our classes remain small to ensure we know, listen, and respond to the voice of every child. Instead of finding cracks to fall through, our students cement relationships that build character, bravery, discipline, and trust over their time here.
