The Academy students will know how to lead others, work collaboratively, think creatively and critically, and have a shared landscape of Core Knowledge upon graduation. The Academy leverages the Core Knowledge curriculum model, an innovative, research-based, carefully designed program that has a proven record of equipping all students with the academic skills and personal values they need to compete in the areas of communication, fine arts, technology, mathematics, and scientific innovation . Through self-governance, teamwork, personal responsibility, and our model of directed and differentiated instructional delivery, each student will be prepared for the challenges and opportunities of life as they move onto high school, college and the workplace.
The Academy believes all students, regardless of background, can achieve academic and personal excellence. Our vision is to position all students for success by combining a distinctive Core Knowledge centered instructional process with a commitment to elevated standards of behavior, academic performance, and personal responsibility. Through Core Knowledge’s intensive focus on literacy, we ensure mastery of essential skills and content knowledge, accelerate student achievement, support student acceptance to top high schools, and lay the foundation for every child to excel in and graduate from college.
