Mission & Vision


The Journey Starts Here...

The Academy’s mission is to help all students grow into college ready, exemplary citizens by combining academic mastery with personal empowerment to drive lifelong success. We serve our full community by intentionally developing a school culture that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Fueling lifelong success through preparation, exploration, and empowerment.

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.

All three notions – Prepare, Explore, and Empower – simultaneously occur in a complete, cyclical fashion at each grade level to honor every student’s need to access all three as well as in a progressive, stepped fashion across grade levels to honor key points of emphasis along the spectrum of childhood development.
