Our History

Peoria Academy opened its doors in August 2000. The brainchild of a group of local parents, community members and administrators, Peoria Academy was envisioned as a place that promoted the highest intellectual, creative, social and physical growth in each child while respecting ethnic and cultural differences.

More than 20 years later, that vision has blossomed into a thriving community of learners. With expert faculty members, creative and enthusiastic students, dedicated administrators and engaged families, we have continued to build our school on those foundational values.

Our school building on Willow Knolls Drive, first renovated by that early group of supporters, has grown to accommodate a growing student population. It now boasts a school garden, state -of-the-art science labs, expansive playing fields and a playground; an art studio, climbing wall, makers space, gymnasium and individually designed classrooms.
