Our mission is to foster intellectual virtues – qualities that engender critical thought, creative problem solving, and self-directed growth – to equip our students for the opportunities and challenges of college, career, and beyond.
Our founding teachers will be a critical part of attracting prospective families, inspiring life-long learners, and providing a rigorous and challenging education. They will join a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and thoughtful organization dedicated to the growth of each of its students, and its staff.
Why Teach at the Academy?
