Olympus Academy

Overview written by the school: Olympus Academy is a Transfer high school in Canarsie, Brooklyn, serving students who have not experienced success in traditional high schools. Our small school serves as a second home to our students, who speak of the school community as "family." The school collaborates with other citywide transfer schools as part of the transfer school district. We use asynchronous learning to provide a personalized approach to education. All of the classes use blended learning to allow students to work at a pace that is most suitable to their needs, while pushing them to maximize their learning experiences.
