Eton Academy is committed to the education of students who learn differently. We build essential skills and confidence that foster lifelong success.
Founded as the Adventure School in 1980, and led by the first Head of School, Gary W. Pedersen, the school was started as a tutorial for children with learning disabilities who found it difficult to succeed in a traditional school setting.
As community awareness grew, and with it an ever-increasing enrollment, the need for a full-curriculum school became apparent. Spearheaded by Pat Hartmann, founding Board member and led by the second Head of School, Mary van der Tuin, Eton Academy was established from the Adventure School in 1986. In 2003, Pete Pullen was hired as Head of School to continue to drive Eton’s mission to serve all who learn differently.
Through campus expansions in 2003 and again in 2016 and the establishment of the Hartmann-Eton Center for Teaching and Learning, Eton’s commitment to help students build confidence and learning skills continues to grow.
