Academic Excellence

On the 2018 Ohio Report Card, Northwest Academy was one of only twelve schools in the city of Cleveland to receive an overall grade of B or higher.  Northwest Academy has worked hard to close the learning gap, the evidence being the A grade the school received in Gap Closing.  Finally, Northwest Academy is one of a few schools in Cleveland to receive all A’s in Value-Added for three straight years!  At Northwest, we focus on the academic growth of all children.
