An Elevated Approach to Community
“Elevate Academy’s mission is for all students to take responsibility for leading their own lives and studying a career track that may include vocational and college paths or a combination thereof.”
Elevate Academy was founded on the belief that students from all backgrounds deserve the opportunity to engage in an educational program that is meaningful to them, and that provides a direction and sense of purpose for their future.
Elevate Academy’s 6th-12th grade students have the opportunity to discover and develop their personal strengths, enhance their leadership skills, and find their passion for life as they explore future career paths. Building a firm foundation in middle school will support continued growth and success for students in high school. Students graduate with industry certification necessary to gain employment and the skills and knowledge to go on and further their training if they desire.
Community Driven Education
Elevate Academy brings education and industry together in a 6th-12th grade, learning environment to build the future of our community and the workforce. Our goal is to help students become career leaders – industry certified, engaged, productive professionals.
Career & Technical Focus
Career Technical Education spaces are designed by professionals and offerings aligned to Idaho’s industry needs. Local industry partnerships include construction, welding/manufacturing, culinary arts, criminal justice, firefighting, business/marketing, graphic design, medical arts, and others according to community input and need.
We believe that when students are inspired by their school and learning, they are more likely to develop healthy habits and mindsets, leading them toward academic achievement and success in the workforce.
Beat the Odds! At Risk Youth
Elevate Academy is a school of choice for students who qualify as at risk and are not finding success in a traditional education setting. Elevate Academy seeks to inspire hope in each learner through goals, opportunities, and instruction that connects to their interests and strengths.
Opportunity Driven Focus
Elevate Academy’s learning opportunities are designed to align local industry work with core academic subjects so that students will find purpose behind everything that is learned in the classroom. Elevate Academy operates on a year-round model. Students attend four days of scheduled learning experiences. The fifth day of the week is additional time for CTE programs, intervention for students who are academically deficient, and enrichment for students that are on or above grade level.
Elevate Academy believes the relationship between teacher and student is vital. For students to learn best, our teachers establish and build relationships of care, trust, cooperation and respect. Our Elevate Academy team shares a passion for supporting each student in developing their full potential, which will help them foster resilience, and ignite their desire to reach new heights.
Integrated Purpose Driven Curriculum
Offering relevant and interest-based learning experiences, while educating the whole child is a priority at Elevate Academy. Core instruction is taught through CTE experiences, providing students with relevant connections to the required Idaho Content Standards. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit and industry certifications. By owning their educational pathway, students become contributing members of their community and local economy upon graduation.
Elevate Academy’s students receive personalized and mastery-based learning opportunities. Students are supported through four phases of learning that include define/identify, create, communicate/share, and apply. We recognize the value of a highly-skilled workforce, along with lifelong learners. Our 6th-12th grade learning continuum provides a space to support students as they develop knowledge and skills of state academic and industry standards.
THE EAGLES NEST
The Eagles Nest is our central team, we believe innovation through collaboration is the heart of creating a responsive educational opportunity for disenfranchised students. The ‘Nest’ exists to increase the capacity of building administrators by fostering innovation and collaboration within their school and community so they can maximize potential to cultivate a responsive community driven personalized education for students
Everything the Eagles Nest does will be in service to the success of Elevate students. The “Nest” does four primary things to enable this success:
1. Steward the vision, mission, and core tenets of the Elevate model
2. Launch new Elevate schools
3. Centralize functions that distract school teams from supporting student success
4. Foster collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement among Elevate school leaders
