Independent. Resourceful. Creative.

The goal of 21st century learning is for students to be independent, resourceful, and strong global citizens who are confident in navigating their success.

Starting in Mechina and Kindergarten, students are taught a design-build process that supports solution-oriented learning goals, encourages them to develop innovations through collaboration and teamwork, and exposes them to an array of cutting-edge technologies. From ideation to creation, the process helps them build reasoning, empathy and creativity skills as well as enabling them to take pride in their work and the potential impact their creations can have.  Young learners are introduced to coding as a literacy to develop computational thinking skills and algorithmic thinking strategies. This approach to learning ensures that all learners are well equipped to navigate the global landscape as inquisitive and empathetic citizens who are empowered to make change.
Examples of learning opportunities include connecting with international pen pals via cloud-based tools, engaging with video conferencing technology to visit with organizations and individuals working to positively impact the world, and leveraging robotics to create inclusive environments. At The Davis Academy, we nurture the value of lifelong learning so that upon graduation, students stay curious and are well-equipped to make a positive mark on the world.
