Our Philosophy

Nurturing the Unique Learner

Individualized Learning

We understand that the key to engaging any child in learning is to appeal to their individual interests and skills.

All Aspects of Care

Our program is structured to meet the individual needs of your child—emotionally, socially and academically.

Incidental Learning

Every second is a learning opportunity. Our campus and classrooms are designed to spark children’s interest and create organic lessons.

Preparing for the Future

West Hills Academy students leave with the confidence and skills to navigate through life and be successful in all walks.

Creating the Perfect Mix

Inspired by the Montessori philosophy of teaching, our classrooms capitalize on a child’s natural curiosity and academic strengths to guide their learning process. We create an environment where children can overcome their various academic, social, emotional, and/or physical limitations. 

  • Incidental Learning 80%
  • Emotional Support 60%
  • Independence 50%
  • Individualized Attention 90%
