What is Phoenix Academy?
The Phoenix Learning Experience
In the Phoenix (Summit) Learning experience, students are aware of what they are learning, why they are learning it and how they learn best. They become self-directed learners and develop the behaviors and mindsets for success beyond the classroom. The curriculum is rigorous and focused on developing cognitive skills, in addition to understanding content.
Pre-AP and AP courses are available.
Students meet 1:1 with a dedicated mentor teacher who knows them deeply and supports them in setting and achieving their short and long-term goals.
Students apply their acquired knowledge, skills and habits to projects that prepare them for the real-world scenarios they will encounter in life after school.
Teachers guide students through a learning cycle that develops self-direction by teaching them how to set goals, make plans, demonstrate their skills and knowledge, and reflect.
