Ignite Achievement Academy believes that EVERY scholar has a genius waiting to be unleashed! Every scholar is treated as if they are gifted and talented. The core curriculum will be aligned to Common Core and Indiana Academic Standards. The school will draw upon the research of Dr. Henry Levin of Stanford University’s accelerated school philosophy. This involves a democratic process in which the culture is driven by all stakeholders. This means that EVERYONE must have a vested interest in the transformation of the school for the overall betterment of not just the school itself, but the entire school community at large. According to Dr. Levin, “Equity, participation, communication, collaboration, community, reflection, experimentation, trust, risk-taking, and the school as the center of expertise are among the central values that orient all actions of an accelerated school.
