The Academy will offer students the opportunity to engage in an interactive, multi-intelligence, multi-age learning environment. We are committed to academic excellence using leadership, cooperation, community involvement, sportsmanship, and character development. The learning environment will include knowledge-based instruction that is supplemented by: developing cognitive skills that promote intelligent behavior; acquiring/enhancing sensory, motor, and emotional skills; focusing on character education; cultivating/expanding life skills to facilitate independence; attaining a sense of security and achievement; recruiting parents, family members, or designated individuals; forming partnerships with community businesses; instituting a mentor program; and establishing a school-wide child advocate program.
