“Plato Academy is a place where each individual is catered to. Intellectual curiosity is imparted into each student through a carefully designed curriculum and environment. Every student is indulged to reach their own full potential. As a Plato Academy graduate I was adequately equipped with the tools needed to generate autonomous and analytical decisions regarding my future. I have gained a brilliant life long mentor who has a deep understanding of life and the obstacles that one has to overcome. Her voice has been my personal inspiration and remains deep in my roots. Thank you Mrs. Koritsaris and the family of Plato Academy!”  -Plato Alumni
