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.

Current Students & Families

We have a busy and vibrant learning community. Please use our Community Page for information from our main office, our Blog for updates on student projects and events, and our Calendar to plan ahead for a busy fall.


 We are in the process of converting to the Skyward student information system.
