We are forming tomorrow’s ethical leaders and entrepreneurs using STEM, online, personalized, and project-based learning. Mission: L & E Academy strives to harness the power of a flexible learning environment and modern educational technology to serve students who seek an educational experience that is more than or different from a traditional high school. Philosophy: We believe that students should be active learners who have real choices regarding their learning environments. We believe that all students should have the opportunity to take online courses and utilize today's technology to prepare for the future. Instructional Success Factors: ** Learning is personalized around the student with a focus on inclusion of different learning styles and needs; students demonstrate mastery before moving on ** Self-discovery in the learning process allows for students to graduate with a clear direction for life beyond high school and skills in leading and being an entrepreneur ** Focus is on creating thinking, ethical leaders and creative entrepreneurs Students engage in STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum needed in the present work force: all students take robotics for at least one year of their science studies Emphasis is on real-life problems to be solved collaboratively in a project-based format ** Content is thematic and integrated; often around leadership and innovations Each student has an adult advisor who meets weekly to collaborate on the student’s personal learning plan and make adjustments where needed An effective combination of face-to-face (classes meet three days each week) and online instruction is used ** The classroom is “flipped” with lessons coming digitally and reviewed at home, so that school time is used for group interactions and experiential application of concepts ** Technology is integrated fully with each student using a personal learning device (iPad)
