Principal's Message

Greetings Eagle Family! 

Welcome to Stanly Academy Learning Center, where we Soar Above Life’s Challenges!

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to serve as principal at a school where all staff members are committed to personalizing the learning experience for our students and building meaningful relationships with each of them. 

We lead as mentors and role models rooted in the belief that all students have the capacity to make wise decisions concerning their future when given proper guidance and instruction. We also believe students should be free to think independently, to inquire freely, and to accept responsibility as active participants in the educational process. The school, home, and community should share the responsibility of guiding and encouraging students to seek desirable goals in life. Constant changes in society and in the community demand flexibility in every aspect of school life. 

That is why we are devoted to providing additional instructional support, creating individualized pathways to graduation and plans beyond high school, holding students accountable for their academic performance and behavior choices, NEVER giving up on our students, and partnering with our families and communities. If you’re reading this page as a current or prospective student, parent, family member, educator, or community member, you are an important stakeholder and your voice matters. I want to hear from you! Feel free to call, email, or schedule a time to meet with me. Together we can make a difference and help students to fulfil their dreams, one day at a time.
