Founder at Active Leadership Academy
Thank you for your interest in Active Leadership Academy! Let us know where to send the Info Kit, and we'll be happy to send it to you right away.
We are currently accepting children aged 5 to 10 years old. As our school's original founding learners grow older each year, we will progressively extend our enrollment to encompass middle school and eventually high school! 🚀
For ages 8-11
Our Elementary Studios are a vibrant mix of hands-on projects, cutting-edge technology, and self-paced academic mastery. Students are surrounded by a close-knit group of peers, and on any given day they could be building racing prototypes in our Makerspace, exploring and connecting with nature, or having a Socratic discussion about history. Each student has the freedom to learn in an environment that challenges them to be excellent while respecting their unique gifts.
Elementary aged learners:
Hands-on learning for Science, Entrepreneurship and the Arts prepare children for Apprenticeships and real world challenges.
Socratic Discussions and self-paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.
The Hero’s Journey, relational covenants and real world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.
The elementary studio offers a safe, caring, and warm environment where young children thrive in Ascension. The studio is arranged by learning areas: building and design, computers, manipulatives, core skills, library, and writing. The daily schedule and routines include a balance of indoor and outdoor activity time, plenty of time to play, which by the way, we feel is SUPER important to a child's development. Children are encouraged to think, reason, question, develop ideas, experiment, and problem solve, as well as make choices and display independence. Kindness and developing good character is a cornerstone in all we do. Navigating the challenges of friendship or learning to identify and express emotions, at Active, the intellectual, social, and emotional life of each child is honored.
