Options Academy aims to guide children to be well rounded individuals who are independent, confident, responsible and respectful in their day to day life. Our name is indicative of our belief that children should be exposed to many options and opportunities to help them grow and excel. At Options Academy children will develop their self-esteem, world knowledge, personality, physical well-being and spirit.
