Empower Your Child To Fulfill Their Dreams

At Mission Academy, we help our K-12 students create their own path to success by developing the real world skills and character traits that matter most.

Is Your Child’s Education Setting Them Up For Success?

Young people need to learn the right things to help them fulfill their dreams. At Mission Academy, our mission is to empower K-12 students to live meaningful lives by providing an environment where they discover their unique strengths, learn real-world skills, and grow in good character. Children get one shot at their education, so they need to learn what matters most.

3 Ways Learning Is Different

It’s Student Centered

We empower kids to own their learning. No homework here. Instead, we help students set goals, manage their time, and work at their own pace on core subjects, while engaging in hands-on projects in science, art, and technology. This is authentic learning, not focused on passing tests or memorizing facts.

Focused On The Real World

We believe students learn by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, playing an instrument, or programming a robot in their summer apprenticeship, our students are building real world skills every day, paving the way for them to succeed in the future.

Guided, Not Taught

Learning should reflect the unique personality and interests of the learner. Instead of boring lectures, our Guides lead small groups, helping students set goals and discover their own learning path. With small groups, caring adults, and lots of freedom, kids are empowered to learn.

What We Focus On

It’s About People

The quality of your relationships determines the quality of your life. So we focus on inspiring students to develop real friendships, a sense of personal accountability, and standing strong in their convictions even as you respect others around you.

Character Is Destiny

Character really matters. The right skillset combined with character is a recipe for long-term success. Skills without character are a recipe for disaster. That’s why we believe in developing meaningful skills and character.

Solve Big Problems

Don’t think small. There are countless big problems in the world, and we need people of vision and courage willing to tackle them. We encourage big dreams and big vision and teach the skills to accomplish those dreams.

Get Back Up

Be gritty. Everybody fails sometimes, but the determined person who gets back up and tries again (and again) is the person who succeeds in their ambitions. It’s OK to fall. Get back up and try again.

We Have What It Takes

We’re better together. We appreciate the perspective of others and realize that we are stronger as a team and community. We teach students to lead by listening and loving our neighbors so that now and forever, they can work together with the person beside them.

Our Active Learning Model

We believe there are 3 critical “C’s” that help learners build the knowledge, character, and skill they need to be their best, and we structure everything we do to maximize them.

Core Skills

Core skills means mastering foundational subjects (like reading and math) at your own pace. Instead of emphasizing standardized testing or grades, we focus on cultivating a love of learning through hands-on subject work (including using adaptive software) and small group work. It’s learning how to learn, a vital skill for the rest of life.

Collaboration

Collaboration means developing socially and emotionally, through work and play, within age groups and across ages. Students are empowered to solve problems, set goals, share ideas in group settings, work as a team, meet individual and group deadlines, and both serve and lead. Learners set themselves up for successful collaboration in the future.

Creating

Creating means taking the time to make stuff with our hands. We focus on projects leading to tangible results, without worrying about perfection. Building something is a journey of discovery, where you can learn as much from your failures as you can from successes. It’s process over results, as students learn to build things that matter.

The Right Environment For Every Stage Of Learning

Learning is a journey, and each of our Learning Communities provides an environment where our learners can uncover their unique strengths, develop real-world skills, and grow their individual character.
