"Revealing Miracles in EVERYONE!"
Miracle Academy was founded in 2020 in the midst of a pandemic. God had previously given us a vision of starting a school, but we didn't know when that time would come. When our daughter Miracle was not accepted back to the school where had been from K5 through the 5th grade, we were hurt. When we received the letter in the mail, we were distraught and wondered what we were going to do. It was not feasible for us to take her to the school that she was zoned for. Many may not know that sudden changes for a child with Down syndrome can turn their world upside down. Therefore, we knew that was not an option. We also considered homeschool but didn't think that would be good for her. As I sat in the main office the next day everyone there could tell by my countenance that I was very distraught. They began making suggestions of other schools that we could take her to and attempts to comfort me. While sitting there, God said to me, "it's time to launch your own school." I said to the people around me, "I know what we're going to do". "we're going to start our own school, and it's going to be called Miracle Academy"! From that day the plan was put in motion to launch the school. After various meetings, phone calls, etc. Miracle Academy was ready to open in the Fall of 2020. The decision was made to accept Special Needs students and honor IEP's. We also adapted to the concept "If they don't learn the way we teach, we will teach the way they learn". We are honored to serve students from in and around Birmingham and give them opportunities that they may not be able to get anywhere else. We are operating under our 501(c)3 Miracle Mullen Downs Foundation. Therefore, all donations we receive are tax deductible.
