1. We visited all the schools in Sarasota and Manatee County before we choose The McKay Academy. We really did our due-diligence. As far as catering to children who learn different they are head and shoulders above the competition. Sister Gilchrist and the entire staff are completely dedicated. Don't be fooled by the name. It's not a catholic school. Our children are jewish and they are welcome and fit in better they have any where else.

  2. We came from NJ and found the right fit for both of our children. Sister Gilchrist and the rest of the educators are talented but more importantly, genuinely caring. They truly live it with many of the staff living on campus. My children have had trouble fitting, in the past, but not here. We have spent several hundred thousand dollars on lawsuits, therapists, expert reports, private schools and were lucky to find this one finally. I wish all educators cared this much. Thank you for everything!

  4. This school and its wonderful staff should be in the dictionary under the word, "dedication." They never give up on a child. Sister Gilchrist is knowledgeable kind, and caring of each student. Mr. Lipinski in one of their staff who stand out. They are truly deserving of the whole community's support and recognition.
