Teaching Philosophy


Administration and Philosophy
Our small staff of Administrators know the primary focus at Collegiate Academy is the students. Administrators work together with teachers, staff members, the Board of Directors, and parents to provide strong leadership for our school community. Our Administrators report directly to the Board and are responsible for the operation and management of the school. In addition to providing strategic planning, the Administrators oversee communication, school finances and building management. 

Teaching Staff
Our goal is to inspire students to become successful, caring, self-motivated learners and leaders. As a charter school, Collegiate Academy hires passionate, innovative teachers who are trained in academic and classroom strategies to enhance each student’s education. Because we keep class sizes small, teachers get to know students as individuals. Strengths and weaknesses. Hopes and dreams. Sports and extracurricular interests. College and career goals.  Our teachers work together with parents to develop success strategies and ensure that each student receives the highest quality education possible.
