What parents have to say about Cumberland:

  • My son started at Cumberland Academy last year and it has completely transformed his and our family's life. His ability is finally being allowed to shine because he is making all A's because the school accommodates for his needs. I can not say enough fabulous things about this school. They really understand and know how to teach students with any type of special need and ensure their success. This school goes beyond teaching just academics, they really develop character in the students and teach them how to become responsible, caring adults.

    Cumberland has been one of the greatest blessings in our life!
