Real Health at Ignite Academy

The mission and vision of Ignite Academy is to create learning environments that ignite boundless growth by immersing kids in real health. So what is “real health”? Real health is concerned with the body’s ability to heal and function at its best. Even more importantly, it considers ALL aspects of health: the physical, mental, and the spiritual. If a person’s health is off in any one area, it will affect the other two areas of health as well. Below are some of the ways we immerse our learners in real health each and every day at school:

Mental Health at Ignite Academy:

● Instilling a growth mindset in our learners
● Developing a life-long love for learning
● Teaching kids how to set goals and reflect on
their progress towards their goals
● Modeling and teaching of social skills and how to build positive relationships
● Helping children verbalize and engage with their emotions
● Giving children strategies for dealing with difficult situations
● Supporting the learner’s creativity and God given gifts instead of making them fit a specific mold
