Kingsbury Academy was developed at the request of the Marion County (Florida) School Board in 1993. Kingsbury Academy provides a structured learning environment and offers a variety of methods and materials that meet the individual needs of students, while maintaining clearly defined limits and strictly enforced consequences for inappropriate behavior.
Kingsbury Academy offers students the opportunity to acquire the academic and social skills that will allow them to return to their base schools and be successful. The curriculum addresses the Florida Sunshine State Standards with an additional focus on behavior modification, individualization, and small group instruction.
