School Notes

  • Sarah Pyle Academy (SPA) is the "BREAKTHROUGH" school program of Wilmington, Delaware. A unique program where students experience education through a Blended Learning, Flex Model with as much, or as little Personalized Learning that makes sense for each student along their path toward graduation and "life after SPA."
