Intellectual Virtues Academy ("The Academy”) is a tuition-free, community-based, innovative high school in 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. They 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 education focused on intellectual virtues enables deep understanding and prepares students for the 21st century.
