Intellectual Virtues Academy ("The Academy”) is a public, community-based, innovative high school in the heart of downtown Long Beach. Academy students ask questions and take risks, learn how to think critically and thoroughly, listen to other perspectives with an open-mind, and use perseverance to overcome challenges. In a world where change occurs almost hourly, knowing facts and figures is no longer the most critical factor. Instead, knowing how to access the latest information, being able to evaluate it, and having the skills to share it and collaborate are what's needed for success in tomorrow’s world. Academy students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and “habits of mind” needed for success in college, careers, and beyond!
 
We invite you to explore the Academy to learn more about how an innovative education focused on intellectual virtues enables deep understanding and prepares students for the 21st century.
