Julie Rohr Academy opened in 1974 as a small day care center with seventeen children.  Since that time, it has grown substantially to meet the needs of the community.  We now serve 170 students and have extended care available before and after school.  With great demands currently being placed on the public school system, it is rewarding to offer an exciting, refreshing alternative.


Julie Rohr Academy's mission is to provide a motivating, challenging, creative, and enjoyable learning climate in a safe, caring, family atmosphere. We strive to provide our students with strong academic skills, problem-solving techniques, performing arts experiences, athletic activities, and emotional security. It is our goal to prepare our students to become capable, cooperative, contributing members of society.


Julie Rohr Academy is accredited by the Florida Kindergarten Council. Every five years, a complete self-study and reevaluation is done. In addition, each time a grade is added or a change in program occurs, an evaluation visit is made by a committee. Florida Kindergarten Schools do not discriminate against any individual on the basis of race, religion, sex, or national origin.
