Question: How is Ignite Academy different from other schools?
Answer: Because we are focused on helping kids thrive rather than just imparting knowledge, our school is an environment where students and family are equipped to live well. To accomplish this we have a three-part approach: 1. We connect kids with their bigger purpose and help them to live out their stories with passion and faith. 2. We help learners build physical, mental, and spiritual health, by developing daily habits and disciplines that will last a lifetime. 3.We strengthen the parents and family who support the learner and give them the resources they need for the journey of raising a world-changer.
Question: What is your educational model (ie. Classical Education, Flipped Education, Project-based Learning, Montessori)?
Answer: We do not adhere to a single educational approach. Our learning time focuses on a) laying a solid, balanced foundation for all major disciplines including: the arts, humanities, language arts, mathematics, physical education, and science and b) providing learners with a context to explore and experience how these disciplines interact in real life scenarios.
