Dr. Kent Johnson founded Morningside Academy in Seattle, Washington to provide behaviorally designed academic and social programs for children and youth and preparation for teachers and other school personnel.
Morningside Academy's school helps both elementary and middle school students to catch up and get ahead. Its students have not previously reached their potential; many have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, or ADD/ADHD; all have average to well above average intelligence. Morningside is not a school for children with significant emotional problems, behavioral problems, or developmental delays. The Foundations Program serves elementary and middle school children in grades 1-9. It focuses upon reading, writing, language, mathematics, reasoning and problem solving, organizational skills, learning skills, and citizenship.
