Why Ivy League Academy?
We are not a franchise and we live up to higher standards that is unfazed by franchise fees, marketing fees, corporate profits and cookie cut creativity. Here is a very basic list that some franchises provide as key differentiators. Not only do we cover this very basic checklist, we also provide superior quality and incredible real life learning experiences. Our programs are unmatched by ‘childcare’ centers and rarely equaled by other private schools and Montessori. We will be glad to share with you our key differences when you take a tour of our center.
