Emerging Leaders Academy

Grades K - 5

Students enrolled in the EL academy will become fully engaged and immersed in instruction. Students are encouraged to ask questions and will become expert researchers, identifying solutions to a myriad of problems. Instruction in this academy is very "hands-on". Teachers facilitate in the EL Academy while students are given the freedom and space to lead their own learning.


  • Students get to explore their curiosities, ask questions and form a new love for learning.

  • Students learn how to solve problems that are important to them, including real community issues, more effectively—even learning from failure and possibly starting over.

  • Students build on their research skills and deepen their learning of applied content beyond facts or memorization.

​Students may enter the EL academy in grades K - 5.
