Royal Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
On behalf of Neptune Society, Matthew DiGiovanni and James Marcey visited the Wilson Academy to donate laptop computers on May 23, 2014. In total, Neptune Society donated 6 laptops to the Wilson Academy. The computers will be used to start the school’s first on-campus computer lab.
“We know how important both education and technology are in today’s workplace,” said Marcey, Vice President of Web and E-commerce for Neptune Society. “With this donation, we hope to help inspire creativity and expand the knowledge of the next generation.”
The Wilson Academy, located in Royal Palm Beach was established in February 2005. The Wilson Academy is a unique school that offers specialized curriculum consistent with each individual student’s intellectual capabilities. Prior to opening the school, Rebecca Wilson, Director of the Wilson Academy, homeschooled a number of children including her own. Today, the school teaches all subjects and has 44 students currently enrolled in grades 3 through 12.
“Our focus is on individualized education. We work closely with the students and the parents in order to ensure that each student is learning in their own capacity,” said Wilson. “We also instill character education, integrity, and good work ethic. We teach the children that success is possible no matter what life struggles we are dealing with.”
Wilson explained that the new computers will be the first resources utilized to start a school computer lab. The Wilson Academy hopes to use the lab to teach basic computer skills, and as a general research tool.
The Wilson Academy is an active member in their local community. “Their team has supported the community through local events such as car washes, senior care services, and education programs for special needs children,” said DiGiovanni, Vice President of Marketing for Neptune Society.
“As for Neptune Society, we serve over 90,000 families a year providing peace of mind pre-planning solutions,” continued DiGiovanni. “So with this event, we wanted to reach beyond our traditional marketplace, and support the Wilson Academy, who continues to provide families with peace of mind toward their children’s educational growth and personal well-being.”
Neptune Society isn’t stopping at donating computers, but also plans to donate their time over the summer. Marcey will be working with Wilson to create a new school website, free of charge. He hopes that the new site will increase visibility for the school both online and offline.
