Family Guide to Supporting Your Child
We provide a supportive academic environment in many ways, especially through growth mindsets: being optimistic about the potential for personal growth, we embrace challenges and regard failure as an opportunity to learn and improve. It is the Academy’s goal to provide good communication with parents (newsletters, website, Illuminate, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). Please come in and talk with your child’s teacher or any of our administration to discuss concerns. The Academy will communicate regularly through newsletters and will post relevant information on the website. Please keep contact information up-to-date to facilitate effective communication.

We are a digital school and communicate most frequently using this platform. If you would like to request paper copies to be mailed home, please visit the Front Office.

Empower Your Child
We do not shelter students from academic challenge, but equip them to utilize resources in order to learn. Help empower your student to follow these steps:
1st Step: Encourage your student to meet with teachers during their office hours during the school day.
2nd Step: Access Resources at Home
3rd Step: Connect with Teacher
You are welcome to visit your child’s classroom at any time. Please make arrangements with the Front Office and your child’s teacher. Please arrange the visit ahead of time and check in at the office before proceeding to class.
