Elementary Handbook

Values & Philosophy

Our academic framework prepares students for post secondary citizenship. Students explore academic content and passion areas through rigorous instruction, hands-on learning experiences, and cross curricular learning. We set the foundation for students to find their voice, advocate, welcome others, and experience personal empowerment through Leader in Me and other social emotional learning experiences. 
The Academy Elementary has three navigational stars which guide our approach to all aspects of the elementary school experience. 


Navigational Stars

Prepare: Elementary students will develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities that prepare them to be successful readers, writers, and mathematicians.

Explore: Elementary students will explore, develop, and showcase their strengths and passions through participating in cross-curricular, hands-on learning projects and specials opportunities in music, art, technology, physical education, and science.

Empower: Elementary students will be empowered to develop their personal and shared leadership capacity as well as their emotional and social competency through Leader in Me and other social-emotional learning to bring their strengths and passions to life.
