    Sarah Pyle Academy has two campuses, one in Newark and one in Wilmington.  Both campuses meet face to face, and will follow the SPA model of small class sizes, personalized learning, and extensive wrap-around supports for your students.  

    Imagine a school where the student gets a say about what they learn, when they learn it, how they learn it and even in how they can demonstrate that they mastered their learning. A place where learning how to make smart choices is just as important as learning square roots and sentence structure.
