Student Life


We know children need to move. In addition to daily recess and P.E. classes – and our very own climbing wall – Peoria Academy offers our fifth through eighth grade students the chance to participate on competitive athletic teams. Our coaches are not only experts in their sports, but understand the value of teamwork, communication, sportsmanship and respect. And, of course, fun.
Peoria Academy is a diverse community of students, parents, and educators working together to provide a rigorous educational experience. Using progressive techniques that nurture the whole child, our independent school fosters intrinsic motivation, resilience, and creativity.
