Welcome to 1st Choice Academy
1st Choice Academy provides a great education.
Kids thrive in our small school setting.

1st Choice Academy is our full day, private school program for pre-kindergarten through 22 years of age.

The primary goal for children enrolled in 1st Choice Academy is to mainstream them into a typical school setting whenever possible. We also provide the highest quality instruction for ongoing learners when mainstreaming is not an option.

1st Choice Academy has low tuition rates and ratios and high quality instruction. 1st Choice Academy follows the Seminole County Public School calendar (with a few exceptions) and is in session Monday through Friday, 9:00AM – 2:00 PM. Wednesday afternoons, we have early dismissal at 1:00 PM. After school / extended day is available for additional fees.

1st Choice Academy prides itself on the high amounts of one-on-one instruction provided during a typical school day. Children are in classes of 2, providing ample time for small group instruction and individualized teaching. 1st Choice Academy is currently taking applications for the upcoming school year. Acceptance is not guaranteed and a waiting list may apply. Our program operates in Sanford and Daytona Beach FL.

Funding sources for 1st Choice Academy include MyKay and CTC scholarships, private pay, Sallie Mae Educational Loans, Key Bank Alternative Loans, Medicaid/ MedWaiver, Children's Medical Services, Community Based Care or Children's Home Society program funds, and private scholarship funds.. If you don't see your payment option listed, please ask.
