The Academy is an enrichment program for rising 6th through high school students. Programming began summer of 2016 and has continued throughout the summer seasons and school years since.
Our mission is to "prepare Academy scholars for success in high school." This mission is fulfilled in three ways:
1. Showing Support - Building trusting relationships between scholars, families, volunteers, interns, and staff is our first priority and step toward preparing scholars for being successful in their future.
2. Empowered Education - Scholars are given opportunities for shared leadership within the program, and are encouraged to take ownership of their education, their capacity to learn, and ability to be engaged citizens.
3. Providing Nourishment - In addition to providing healthful snacks during the school year and two meals during the summer program, the Academy seeks to nourish the whole individual by fostering personal growth.
Scholars are asked to make a 1-year commitment to the Academy, and long term participation is encouraged. Use the link on this page to access an application with further information about the Academy.
