Our Vision


This graphic illustrates the application of The Academy's three Navigational Stars

Our approach to vertically aligning the full educational experience for our students from youngest to oldest centers around three notions – Prepare, Explore, and Empower – that keep us grounded in The Academy’s mission and vision as we set priorities and make decisions that impact instruction and school culture.

Our Progress

The Academy's Board of Directors and Senior Admin Team track the school's progress toward key strategic goals using a scorecard for each of our Strategic Plan categories: Instruction, Culture, Finance, and Operations.

All students develop the academic skills needed to prepare for lifelong success

The Academy's mission is to prepare students to become college ready, exemplary citizens. Our graduating class of 2022 is an inspiring example of that mission made reality. This group of students includes so many interesting, engaging, and impressive individuals who will go on to do amazing things with their lives. Their graduation from high school is the culmination of years of preparation, exploration, and empowerment at The Academy  - for some since they started with us all the way back in kindergarten. We are so proud of our graduates!

Highlight on Explore: Work-Based Learning

All students explore their strengths and passions through real-world learning

Meaningful learning happens beyond the physical boundaries of school. Students are better prepared for the working world when they engage in meaningful experiences that include direct interaction with professionals from industry and the community. Our internships, work-study options, and entrepreneurship sequence promote learning about work, learning through work, and learning at work.

Highlight on Empower: Leader in Me

Lifelong success requires students to have the skills that empower them to lead their own futures. We use the Leader in Me framework to teach personal leadership skills, create a culture of student empowerment, and encourage greatness.
