Our faculty inspire students to be active learners, visionary leaders, and architects of their own futures by promoting passion, interest, intellectual curiosity, and independence; by teaming with colleagues (on-site and around the world) in professional collaborations and interdisciplinary studies; and by helping to develop joyful, life-long learners of deep character who turn empathy into action and vision into creation.Our faculty inspire students to be active learners, visionary leaders, and architects of their own futures by promoting passion, interest, intellectual curiosity, and independence; by teaming with colleagues (on-site and around the world) in professional collaborations and interdisciplinary studies; and by helping to develop joyful, life-long learners of deep character who turn empathy into action and vision into creation.

The Academy High faculty use dynamic instructional strategies and methods. Engaging and challenging students to think, do, and create are the hallmarks of teaching in our school. Students are active participants in their own education, required to examine and analyze information; synthesize knowledge into new concepts and ideas; test and evaluate claims and theories; and debate and defend their own ideas, outcomes, and creations. Students will learn by continually calling upon prior knowledge and skills to master new challenges. Open-ended driving questions demand that students apply abstract academic content and skills across multiple disciplines into real world projects.
