Phoenix Academy is a non-profit private K-8 school that helps students with learning challenges get back on track. Students typically attend one or two years and then return to their previous schools, ready to learn with their peers. We are located in Omaha, NE and are Nebraska Department of Education approved.
Phoenix Academy was founded in 1991 by Patti Clark who saw a need for a different way of teaching reading. Phoenix Academy started with one student and today we continue our mission to make a difference for students and families one child at a time. Learn more about us.
