Our Approach

We distinguish ourselves by creating a best-in-class program which prepares every pupil to soar in the present and projected digitally driven culture. We equip each student with the education needed to be ready for college, career, and citizenship by focusing on the individual student's needs.

Our Story

The foundation of the Academy is an Earn and Learn Model through which students will have campus experiences beginning K-graduation. The Academy was designed to: (1) increase access and graduation rates of underrepresented, underprepared, and low-income students in Agriculture, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics programs; (2) reduce time to completion; (3) improve college affordability; and (4) improve learning outcomes of all students at the Academy.

We value our productive partnerships and realize that we would not be able to launch our program without the feedback and support from our community. People are our #1 Assets.
