Welcome From Dr. Mac

We are excited you are interested in becoming a part of the Courage family!

Courage Schools was founded to provide a rich learning environment for students who are twice exceptional. Courage students have a language-based learning difference and strong analytical abilities. It is a special place for students to learn and grow while embracing the gifts they have been given.

Courage utilizes a STEAM/project-based approach to enrich and extend the visual, spatial, and creative strengths of students while giving students the tools and strategies needed to understand and manage their language difference using a structured literacy approach. This dual approach allows students to understand how their brain works. It allows for the support needed to help them develop their language skills while celebrating and developing their strengths.

Please click here and a Courage staff member will contact you to discuss the school.

​I look forward to meeting you soon!
