The Academy includes a skills-based curriculum of mindfulness, movement, social emotional learning, leadership, and academic learning. The students develop skills that allow them to balance their body, mind, and spirit which in-turn uncovers their passions and interests in different fields. Meaningful and impactful curriculum is co-created with students with a strong emphasis on metacognition and executive functioning skills. All work related to the academy will occur during the day and no homework is assigned. The year will begin with an interdisciplinary unit on the Coastside community that interweaves science, history, math, and english skills. This unit will connect the students with our community and serve as a model for future co-created units.
