 In Camelot Blog

The Camelot Academy transition program in Escambia County, Florida was the subject of a wonderful article in the Pensacola News Journal by Erin Kourkounis this week. It reveals what we’ve known for some time, this past year has been a “banner one” for the new school! Executive Director Drew Stem has successfully implemented Camelot practices and the proof is in the results.

Unlike other public schools, a typical day at Escambia Camelot Academy involves community meetings, small class sizes, and lots of one-on-one interaction. This allows students, many of whom have experienced more than their fair share of adversity, the opportunity to bond with staff members as positive role models.

Camelot is focused on educating the full person, which is why Camelot Academy’s behavior results are particularly meaningful. The school has seen instances of disruptive behavior drop dramatically.
