To create a caring and nurturing learning environment which will develop the whole child: socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically; and to encourage our children to become self-confident, enthusiastic lifelong learners.
TheYouth Academy offers a place in the community for young people where they know someone cares for them. The Youth Academy has trained professional youth development staff who serve as role models and mentors to our youth. We provide programs and services that promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence. The Youth Academy is; a safe place to learn and grow–all while having fun.
TheYouth Academy’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Program allows students to engage in activities integrating STEM concepts that are traditionally taught as separate subjects. Activities and resources are provided to emphasize the application of information to real-life situations. The program is geared toward improving the students’ knowledge and interest in STEM subjects as well as to make students aware of STEM related careers.
Youth Academy’s SPARK program is dedicated to promoting lifelong wellness among our students and their families. Academy staff strives to improve the health of children, adolescents and adults by providing evidence based physical education curriculum for our K-12 students.
