At IDEAS Academy we are dedicated to preparing students for our rapidly changing world, one that increasingly values conceptualization, innovation, and empathy. We are moving into an era where creative thinking is valued as much as critical thinking and basic communication skills are no longer enough. Those that thrive will have the ability to understand what moves humankind, the ability to create relationships, and the ability to think holistically.

We live in an unprecedented time, one that requires an educational shift to ensure our students are prepared for the future. At IDEAS Academy students learn to use their mind well and thrive in an era with exponential growth in technology and information. Our graduates are powerful communicators, innovators, and leaders.

IDEAS Juniors visit Education Fair at Lakeland

Juniors at IDEAS Academy excitedly hopped onto the bus to visit Lakeland University for the Wisconsin Education Fair on Wednesday, September 28. The students were given a list of the nearly 100 colleges at the Fair and set loose to talk to representatives from and learn about colleges and other post-high school education opportunities in the Midwest area. The Fair helped students move farther along their path to college readiness and career plans. Students with no clue of what the future holds were granted inspiration that drove them to consider things they never had.
