Curriculum

IDEAS Academy offers a rigorous academic program focused on innovative thinking and creative problem solving. Our curriculum cultivates broad use of the student’s mind by taking subject matter beyond rote memorization. Based on cutting edge research from Harvard Graduate School of Education, the curriculum is taught utilizing visible thinking and multiple intelligences  to create an environment of active and applied learning.

Our curriculum’s main objective is to teach standards-based academic content in an engaging 21st Century format that prepares students for college while providing an opportunity to extend their academic knowledge. Knowledge learned in each discipline is then synthesized with other disciplines to create new or original ideas of value. Communication and career skills are a key focus in student presentations, critique, and reflection.
