Unfortunately, when I went to UGA, I struggled and had to take remedial classes which taught me how to "learn" and develop good study skills before going into regular classes. For this reason, my child does not attend Terrell Acadeny and attends a different private school. I want her to be bettter prepared for college.

Do not expect a high quality education at this school! My kids are now a grade behind thanks to this school. The majority of the teachers are not friendly.
