Inspiring Courage & Creativity
We believe every person who enters our door is destined to find a calling and change the world.
At Innovator Academy we believe that clear thinking leads to good decisions, good decisions lead to the right habits, the right habits lead to character and character becomes destiny.
Our Learner Driven Communities are run mostly by our Eagles, where closely connected families of lifelong learners are bound by clear covenants; and “Learning to Do” and “Learning to Be” are even more important than “Learning to Know.”
Learn to be
The Hero’s Journey, relational covenants and real world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.
Learn to do
Hands-on Quests for Science, Entrepreneurship and the Arts prepare children for Apprenticeships and real world challenges.
Learn to learn
Socratic Discussions and self paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.
What is disruptive education?
We are currently accepting applications for the 2020 school year.
Starting the application process doesn’t mean you’re committed, or accepted, but it will give you insight to the Innovator Academy approach, and answer many of the questions you likely have.
Good luck!! Just kidding. There are lots of resources for you. Here are our top recommendations to get you started:
- Courage To Grow - this is book is hands down the best introduction to Acton and disruptive education. Warning: tissues may be required.
- Jeff Sandefer at Ted Talks (also, here)
- Unschooling Rules - Excellent, simple read for expanding the "unschooling" concept.
- New experiments in self-teaching by Sugata Mitra (Ted Talk)
