Vision Statement: To engage the entire Scholars’ Academy Community in cultivating and celebrating well rounded scholars and citizens equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to pursue success and happiness in the 21st Century

Mission Statement: To prepare for college and careers of the 21st Century

Theory of Action: To leverage technology to enhance student learning through increased efficiency and communication

Teacher’s Creed ( by Principal Brian O’Connell)

First, I will do no harm: not to body, not to mind, not to attitude, not to confidence, not to dreams, not to trust.

I will inspire, foster curiosity, engage, question, challenge, coach, and counsel.

I will engage students with and raise awareness of facts and known truths spanning history and cultures in order to teach students how to think in order to question facts and prove the new truths of tomorrow.

I will help students think and act with honor, ethics, and respect.

I will prepare all students to find what possibilities exist within their beings so they may pursue their potential and independently discover their respective roles in society.

I will be an educator:  one who draws forth the strengths of students to be independent, informed, productive, and participatory members of society.

By June 2017, the Scholars’ Academy will implement a comprehensive collaborative professional learning plan that supports teacher readiness to engage in at least 3 advisory sessions, 3 collegial lesson study cycles, and a minimum of 4 subject team specific sessions designed to impact teacher use of questioning and discussion strategies via improved lesson task design and data analysis. This will result in 50% of teachers rated Highly Effective in Danielson Competency 3b, an increase of 3% from the 2015-2016 school year.
