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.
Real World Skills
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.
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. Students learn by 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 scholars are building real world skills every day and paving a path to success 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. We focus on inspiring students to develop real friendships, a sense of personal accountability, strong convictions, and respect for others.
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.
See Why Parents Just Like You
Choose mission Academy!
My son absolutely loves this school (his friends, his teachers, and the overall experience). I love how involved it feels with frequent chances to view the kids’ work through exhibitions and holiday get-togethers, and also how it teaches the kids to be responsible for their own education and for themselves in general.
The greatest opportunity in having a child enrolled in this school is what they will learn in self-discipline, ownership of their education, and the ability to solve problems on their own and with their peers. I feel I have a much better chance to have my children become successful adults enrolled here.
This school is a place of learning for a lifetime, and not just learning for grade requirements. My son has gained independence, insight, and motivation, unlike when he was at public school. And he is learning about kindness, teamwork, and his own individual strengths.
Our Students build small businesses from the ground-Up Each Year
Students launch their own startup business and develop a brand, create a product or service, market their business, and open for business at our one-day marketplace.
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.
