The Academy for Individual Excellence

Dedicated to the task of enabling children to achieve “Individual Excellence” in character, responsibility, and education by promoting work ethic, engagement, accountability and compassion

The Academy for Individual Excellence is identified as a family-oriented school striving to create a natural environment that is low risk and conducive to encouraging high motivation and self-direction. It is believed that this type of environment fosters a child’s natural love of learning and allows each child to be inspired and, in return, inspire others. By emphasizing basic skills that promote work ethic, engagement, accountability and compassion, the program establishes a foundation for the well-rounded, lifelong pursuit of knowledge.

The Academy’s approach to its student population is unique in that it allows each child to be evaluated according to their ability and circumstance. Our goal is individual success; the reward is high self-worth and valuable life skills.

The Academy believes that all children have the natural desire to achieve and will succeed and learn best when experiencing success in their journey. It is believed that children are empowered most when their participation in the journey is seen as significant as the measurable outcome. The Academy recognizes that success is found in the attempts and level of engagement of the learner and not only in the product. Supporting children by identifying these successes along the journey of learning is vital and equally as important as teaching the material.

Philosophy Statement

The Academy believes that all children have a natural desire to achieve and learn best by experiencing success. We believe that children are empowered most by their engagement in the journey of learning. While we believe in the importance of teaching the material, our focus is on teaching the child to learn. We believe that this is best accomplished in a setting that replicates the most natural environment for fostering a child’s love of learning – the family. This family model allows each child to be inspired and, in return, inspire others while learning to respect and value individuality. We believe, through this experience, children are presented with the tools that empower them to become productive students and successful adults.

This empowers its students to make appropriate choices exemplifying responsibility and accountability. The Academy for Individual Excellence is prepared to be seen as a successful education model that encompasses the needs of a variety of students.
